The Weigela Bushes are in Full Bloom!


Weigela is a small deciduous shrub that grows best in a sunny location with moist soil. The flowers are long and are trumpet-shaped. In fact, they are a part of the Honeysuckle family! This plant is considered mostly allergy free and causes little or no allergy problems in most people. There are about 10 species of East Asian flowering shrubs belonging to the family Diervillaceae, some widely grown as ornamentals for their spring and summer flowers. The tubular, white to red blossoms are borne on upright shrubs to 4 metres (13 feet) tall.
