The dozen or so species of the genus Weigela are easy-to-grow, deciduous woodland shrubs from east Asia. Their showy flowers attract hummingbirds and butterflies, and many Weigelias are worth growing in shrub borders or lightly shaded gardens for their foliage effects.

HOW PLANTS ARE SHIPPED
The size of the plants we ship has been selected to reduce the shock of transplanting. For some, this means a large, bareroot crown. Others cannot travel bareroot or transplant best if grown in containers. We ship these perennials and annuals in 1 pint pots, except as noted. We must point out that many perennials will not bloom the first year after planting, but will the following year, amply rewarding your patience. We ship bulbs as dormant, bare bulbs, sometimes with some wood shavings or moss. Shrubs, Roses, vines, and other woody plants may be shipped bareroot or in pots. The size of the pot is noted in the quick facts for each item.

Latin Name Pronunciation: wye-jee'luh
Weigela has a round, mounded growth habit and flowers mid-May into June. Flowers are rather tubular in form, in small clusters. Weigela will sometimes throw off a few flowers on and off all summer, up until frost. Growth rate is moderate: 12–24″ per year depending upon conditions.
CULTURE: Grow Weigela in full sun to partial shade and average garden soil with good drainage. Space 24–30″ apart. Fertilize just once, in early spring, with 5-10-5 or 5-10-10. Weigelas blooms on prior year's growth, so remove any dead or weak twigs in early spring, and prune after bloom if plant needs a bit of shaping.
PROBLEMS: Few problems with insects or diseases.
SUGGESTED USE: Front of the perennial or shrub border, foundation planting, along pathways. Attracts butterflies and hummingbirds.
