Planting and flowering details
  • Planting
  • What do I need?
    • A trowel
    • Garden peat and compost
    • Water


    Water first
    First, place the Weigela in a bucket of lukewarm water. Add some garden peat and compost to a large pot, dig a hole and plant it. First place the plant in shade, and move it to an area in the sun for an hour longer each day, so it can adapt.


    In the garden
    Weigelas love sun or half shade and nutrient-rich soil. Dig a planting hole and till the soil a bit, so the roots can take hold quickly. Set the root ball at the proper height, so that the top is just below ground level. Fill the hole up with soil, garden peat and compost, and press firmly. Water the plant right away.

    Maintenance
    Cover the soil around the plant with compost in the winter; this makes more nutrients available to the lilac. A dwarf lilac needs extra water if it has been planted in a pot.
     

    Pruning
    You can prune away the branches of your dwarf lilac after it blooms. Trim away all the branches that have bloomed down to the new growth. You can also prune off runaway growth from the roots.

    The Weigela is a winter-hardy shrub that produces many flowers. Its compact size makes pruning unnecessary. The robust Weigela will blossom on last year’s growth. After it blooms, trim away about half of the old branches down to the new growth. If necessary, you can fully prune the Weigela after some time.

  • Specifics
  • The Weigela makes a stunning shrub border, regardless of whether you plant them individually or let them grow wild. Weigelas come in all different shapes and sizes. Their flowers come in a wide range of colours: from stunning pastel hues to dazzlingly bright shades like yellow, orange and red. Some types have variegated leaves, and some grow rather compactly. Every type produces plenty of spectacular, bell-shaped flowers. They are easy to prune and lend themselves perfectly to separate hedge or border of shrubs.

     

    With a Weigela in your garden, you can bask in the glory of this enchanting shrub from early summer until deep into the autumn. To create the best-looking effect with colour, it is useful to plant this shrub in several areas of your garden.

     

    The Weigela is member of the honeysuckle family (Caprifoliaceae).
