Weigela hortensis one of the first varieties of Weigela to reach the U.S. from its native Japan, arriving here well before 1900. It's one of the large, old-fashioned varieties that popularized Weigela. The long arching canes lined with clusters of pink trumpet-shaped flowers from mid to late spring, combined with its relative hardiness and easy care made it a favorite in American gardens.
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.
