This lovely shrub displays tube-shaped flowers in various pink hues during the spring. The plants are attractive to hummingbirds, so plant Weigela shrubs if you want these beautiful birds to visit your yard.
The shrub has green leaves that often drop after turning brown during summer and fall. However, breeders have worked with Weigela to grow versions of the shrub that yield variegated, burgundy leaves near the end of summer and the beginning of fall.
The shrubs are vigorous, hardy, and easy to maintain. Weigela grows best in zones 3-9 and can thrive in the sun and partial shade. If you live in a hot area, make sure the plants receive light shade in the afternoons to keep the leaves from burning. That is especially important for shrubs with variegated leaves. Some Weigela varieties, like the My Monet, change color depending on how the light hits them. The My Monet showcases leaves with a white tint when the plant is in the shade and pink leaves when the Weigela is in full sun. While the plants bloom in the springtime, they reflower during the growing season so that you may see stunning flowers on the plant during most of the year.
It's best to plant the Weigela in well-drained, moist soil. Be sure to add lots of composted manure or homemade compost to your planting bed. Doing this adds nutrients to the soil and helps with soil drainage. The shrubs will grow well in several soil types, but it's best to keep the soil moist for the plants to be at their healthiest and most colorful.
