Pink Weigela (Weigela florida)
Pink Weigela, Weigela Florida, is a long-blooming, stunningly handsome deciduous shrub in the honeysuckle family. Besides the name pink weigela, you might hear some refer to it as old-fashioned weigela.
This plant has it all--a graceful shape, vibrant pink blooms, and an independent nature that is entirely undemanding. It grows in the cool to moderately warm USDA growing zones with little care once it establishes roots.
This plant does not just bloom. Instead, it reblooms time and again throughout a single growing season. You will have gorgeous pink color for many weeks.
All it asks of a gardener is a nice sunny spot to bask in, a generous helping of fertilizer in the early spring before the shrub blossoms, a little water on the hottest days, and mulch to prepare for the winter cold. It really requires little else.
Where to Use Pink Weigela in Your Landscape
Pink weigela has many practical landscape applications, as follows:
- Hummingbird garden: The tiny, busy little birds love the tubular shape of pink weigela flowers--they will find them irresistible.
- Pollinator garden: Besides the hummingbirds mentioned above, bees, butterflies, and birds will gravitate to this species.
- Shade garden: This plant will perform well in partial sunshine, so use it in that somewhat sunny spot in your shade garden.
- Natural area: Brighten any natural space in your yard--pink weigela makes a lovely accent flower.
- Stand-alone specimen: This shrub is an excellent choice if you want to pick one bright, colorful plant to stand alone as a focal point in your landscape.
Pink Weigela Is A Lovely Shrub in Both Color and Form
Pink weigela is a beautiful shrub. Besides the bright pink, reblooming flowers, it has an elegant shape with stems that bend gracefully from the weight of the leaves and flowers. It is a natural and charming look.
The leaves are oval-shaped, measuring under two inches long, light to medium green, and have toothy edges. They grow in an opposing pattern on the gray stem. In autumn, the leaves turn purple or burgundy.
The pink flowers are vibrant--a true pink. They are trumpet-shaped, just over one inch, and abundant, stretching the entire stem.

LOOKS GOOD OUT OF CARTON
I so love this shrub since i had this purchased from TN nursery. Am so excited for springtime and summer. This would give more color in my garden.
slow arriving and seemed slow waking up (beginning to have leaves) but doing well to date.
I ordered 2 in summer of '20 and they arrived as expected in the autumn dormant season (Dec). I overwintered them outside then planted them in good soil in March when the soil thawed. Both are looking GREAT and are growing and looking superb - BRAVO!!!!
FANTASTIC PRODUCT. COULD NOT BELIEVE HOW MANY STALKS I GOT WITH BARE ROOTS. SIX OR SEVEN. HAD HUBBY DIG A TRENCH SO I COULD SPREAD THEM ALL OUT AND HOPE THEY ALL GROW. USED ROOT PLANT STARTER, COCO FIBER, WORM CASTINGS, SPECIAL PLANTING SOIL WITH PERLITE AND MORE TO GIVE THESE A CHANGE TO GROW FAST, STRONG AND BEAUTIFUL
