Electric Love weigela named Plant of the Year at Canada Blooms

The flowering shrub will be honored at the Toronto event, which takes place March 8-17.


ABBOTSFORD, B.C. – Bloomin’ Easy has announced that Electric Love weigela will showcase as Plant of the Year for the 2019 Canada Blooms show starting next week in Toronto, Ontario.

“Electric Love is one of those rare finds where you immediately know it’s going to be a hit in the market,” says Bloomin’ Easy’s brand manager, DeVonne Friesen. “We see demand for it soaring because people recognize it as special and something truly unique — no matter their level of experience or knowledge of plants.”

What makes Electric Love Weigela novel is the true red bell flowers against dark foliage. Aside from the unique aesthetic, it’s compact and tidy, reaching around two feet tall and three to four feet wide, and cold hardy to USDA Zone 4 (-34°C/-30°F). Because of its smaller frame, Electric Love will work well in a variety of landscapes as well as in decorative containers on the balcony or patio.

Canada Blooms runs March 8 through March 17 at the Enercare Centre in downtown Toronto, Ontario. Over 200,000 visitors from around the globe are expected to pass through its garden gates to enjoy expertly crafted show gardens, celebrity and expert talks, workshops and much more.

Electric Love Weigela and other exclusive varieties from the Bloomin’ Easy collection will be available this spring at Canadian Tire, Sheridan Nurseries, and many garden centers both in Canada and the U.S. this season. Visit bloomineasyplants.com/retailers to find a store near you.
