About Weigela

Weigela are abundant deciduous shrubs with attractive pale-green, ovate leaves and clusters of funnel-shaped blooms, subtly coloured in shades of white, yellow, pink or red, that display in abundance throughout spring and summer. Weigela are the perfect compact shrub for those with limited space, tucking in nicely between companion plants in flower beds and borders within an informal garden setting. You should expect to see Weigela grow to an approximate height and spread of 60cm (24”).

How to plant Weigela

Weigela are best planted in well-drained soil of sand,chalk, clay and loam within an acidic, alkaline or neutral PH setting. Dig a hole that is the same depth but twice the width of the root ball, amending the soil with a generous amount of compost, combining thoroughly to the native soil. Spread the roots and settle in place. After planting, water well to settle the soil. Weigela are best positioned an area of full sun although they will tolerate part shade.

How to care for Weigela

Weigela will need to be pruned to neaten its overall shape and size. You should also remove old, damaged and dead wood to improve your shrubs vigour for the following year. Once established, Weigela will tolerate hard pruning. Fertilise your shrubs once a year by applying a balanced plant food in winter as this will promote better spring blooms. If rainfall has been limited, water your shrubs during active growth on a weekly basis.

How to propagate Weigela

It is possible to propagate Weigela by softwood cuttings or semi-hardwood cuttings during early summer or hardwood cuttings during late autumn or winter.
