Description
Weigela hortensis one of the first varieties of Weigela to reach the U.S. from its native Japan, arriving here well before 1900. 'Dart's Pink Lady' is a direct descendant, and shares the impressive size, weeping habit, and prolific spring bloom of its parent. From May into June its branches are lined in clusters of warm shade of pink trumpet-shaped flowers, and with a spread of up to 12 feet, it makes an impressive 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.
