I had a weigela called wine and roses for about fifteen years,but when we moved it was too large to move.I needed one more.This one is growing well.We are in a drought right now,so I water it when no rain.I think it will be alright in time.
Arrived as healthy, dormant, rooted cuttings. All have begun to leaf out and are everything I’d hoped for. Thank you!
Hello, I received two Weigela and one of them is doing very well, the other didn't have any green leaves just starting and unfortunately, it still doesn't. I'm going to keep it planted to see if it decides to live. Both are planted in the same area with the same soil. The one that is doing very well, I did receive looking very healthy, the other not so much. I will continue to nurture. Otherwise, I believe in your plants and cannot wait to see if you the maturity of the plant. Thank you for sending them to me. I will keep you updated. Ginnie
The Red Weigela arrived in great condition and are already showing signs of life with new green leaves popping out. I look forward to watching them grow.
Purchased are bare root plants and I wish they had come packaged better. Plants were totally dry when I received them. It was 5 bare root stems that i immediately put in the ground. So far 3 have budding on them and 2 don't. I'm not removing the 2 that are not budding as I'm taking a wait and see attitude.
