Weigela is a low maintenance shrub with big rewards. It’s a traditional old fashioned shrub that has proven itself as a keeper. Weigela produces arching stems that produce bell-shaped blossoms in late spring to early summer. Their colorful blooms attract birds, feed the bees and add vibrant color to gardens. There are many types of Weigela. Of those types, some have variegated foliage, dark-colored foliage and traditional green foliage. The blossoms come in colors such as: pink, hot pink and white. When planting, make sure to take into consideration how big the shrub could get. Some Weigela grow up to 10 feet tall and wide. Weigela loves full sun and well-draining soil, but will tolerate some shade. Plant for privacy, in a border or for added interest in any garden.
