From late June into July, 'White Knight' Weigela is covered with clusters of pure-white, fragrant, trumpet-shaped flowers. The show may go on for as long as two months and even repeat in the fall. At maturity the branches have a graceful, arcing habit, bending down to touch the ground. It's often used as a hedge, or a specimen.

Bees, butterflies, and hummingbirds love Weigela, and so do gardeners. For a plant that gives you so much to look at, they're very easy to care for. No particular disease or pest problems. No special soil requirements. No deadheading. Just give them good drainage, reasonable moisture, and plenty of sun. Prune after spring bloom—fall pruning puts next year's flowers at risk.
