Growing Weigelas in the Home Landscape


The attractive flowers of the weigela (Weigela florida) are a common sight in landscapes in late spring. The funnel-shaped flowers may be white, pink, red, or purple-red. The flowers attract butterflies and hummingbirds. Weigelas bloom on both old and new wood. The shrubs bloom heavily in late May or June on the previous year's growth.  They also bloom intermittently through the summer on the current season's growth.
