You say it like this “Why-gee-luh”. It is actually a member of the honeysuckle family and this old-fashioned beauty has been around for a very long time. It bursts into spring with very pretty tubular shaped flowers in varying shades of pink, burgundy, red or white – sometimes more than one colour on the same plant. Weigelas then flower sporadically throughout the summer. And with that trumpet shaped flower, you will be sure to attract hummingbirds. A beautifully ornamental flowering shrub that is both hardy & easy to grow. This undemanding shrub prefers full sun but will grow with some afternoon shade as well. Weigela come in many sizes suitable for small or larger spaces. Some of the dwarf varieties could be used as edging plants while the larger one for stand-alone or hedging. We know we have one that would fit perfectly in your landscape.
