Colour is a bit insipid

I put this in a sunny border last October. It flowered for about six weeks, from the beginning of June to about mid July. I see two or three flowers on it now. All fine, and it looks healthy enough, but the flowers are a bit non-descript and I just don't like it much. I swithered between All Summer Red and this one. Maybe the wrong choice!

I planted the all summer red not so long ago and it's doing great, lots of flowers so I saw this one and ordered straight away. Arrived well packaged and the plant, although a little smaller than the summer red I purchased from crocus is a lovely plant and flowering but I can't see many flower buds . I planted it in a large planter, fed and watered it, now it's just a case of wait and see, if it does as well as the summer red I will be a happy gardener.

Do I need to deadhead my weigela plant or let the flowers drop off? There doesn't seem to be any information anywhere.

Hello, No, you do not need to deadhead these plants, however after they have finished flowering, you should give them their annual prune. This would involve cutting back the flowered shoots to strong buds or lower side shoots, and on well established plants, removing around one in four of the old stems.
