Suzanne Weigela

Availability: Out of stock

Pretty leaves or pretty flowers. Sometimes you have to choose. But not this time. Suzanne Weigela (Weigela florida 'Suzanne') happily gives you both! Beautiful long before she blooms, her variegated foliage is cool green, edged in a dainty line of creamy white! These lovely leaves cover the plant from spring to fall!

Then in the late spring or early summer, Suzanne is covered in both pink and white trumpet-like flowers on the same plant! Suzanne attracts jeweled Hummingbirds, buzzing bees, and swarms of butterflies to sip the nectar! Even a few branches add their delight to your bouquets. Don't worry about depriving pollinators, because you'll enjoy a rebloom later in the season!

Suzanne will only grow 4 feet tall and wide, so she is compact enough that she rarely needs any pruning! Forming colorful variegated mounds or arching foliage, these deciduous shrubs are cold-hardy throughout USDA growing zones 4 to 8, are adaptable, and are easy to grow!

Planting and Application:

Suzanne makes a grand statement along an entry walk or in a big perennial bed. Don't let her small size fool you though. She still has a very big impact from sheer color and repeat blooms! It looks great on its own, but also makes a fantastic grouped accent, are gorgeous specimens, or facer plant before a leggier hedgerow!

This Weigela variety looks as great as an unpruned, informal low hedge as it does as a carefully pruned fountain-like or manicured look! Add interesting color and definition anywhere, without a lot of effort from you! These smaller Weigelas can be used in containers and planters around sunny porches and patios! Their adaptable size makes these ornamental focal points perfect for container gardeners!

  • Bright Pink & White Trumpets
  • Variegated Cool Green & White Edged Foliage
  • Fast Growing & Three Seasons of Showy Color
  • Hummingbird & Pollinator Friendly Nectar-Rich Blooms
  • Great for Containers, Beds & Borders!

#ProPlantTips for Care:

Suzanne Weigela shrubs love the sun and for best leaf and flower color and overall performance, you'll want to plant her in a sunny spot. Make sure that you water her regularly in the hottest parts of the summer, though. If she's not happy, then her wilt will show it. A generous layer of mulch helps retain soil moisture in the ground as well as insulates the root system from heat and chill. Prune after the flowers fade if Suzanne begins to look a little unkempt. Weigela does benefit from a renewal pruning every 3-5 years.

  • Full Sun
  • Moderate Moisture Needs
  • Adaptable Throughout Most Well-Drained Soils
  • Prune After Flowers Fade & Renewal Prune Every 3-5 Years
  • Low Maintenance, Easy to Grow & Deer Seldom Bother Them

Bicolored leaves and sweet blooms! The Suzanne Weigela is that highly sought-after combination of easy care and stunning good looks that every gardener longs for! Don't let every gardener plant this before you do. Order yours today at Nature Hills!
