#ProPlantTips for Care:

Plant in full sun for the best flowering, especially in the northern states to part shade in coastal regions. Weigela is easily grown in average, medium moisture, well-drained soils. Plant Weigela in well-drained rich soil with moderate, regular moisture. Top dress with a thick layer of wood chip mulch, but please take care to ensure the mulch doesn't touch the stems directly.

It's amenable to pruning, so you can shape it as needed but because of its compact, dwarf size and naturally tidy form, you'll appreciate its low-maintenance nature! Rejuvenate your mature Weigela by pruning out the oldest, fattest stems down to the ground every three years or so. Leave the thin, young stems to provide the most amazing blooms for you!

  • Full Sun & Partial Shade
  • Moderate Moisture Needs
  • Well-Drained Enriched Soil & Mulched Beds
  • Prune After Flowering & Renewal Prune Every 3- 5 Years
  • Deer Seldom Bother These Cold Hardy Shrubs
