Product Description

Weigela florida ‘Rosea’ is a lovely deciduous shrub with arching branches and bright green leaves that form a mound of loose stems as it begins to grow in spring.

From May until July it will produce bright cerise buds that open into clusters of lovely, funnel shaped pink flowers. Weigela florida varieties are recommended by the RHS as 'Plants for Pollinators' and are a favourite with butterflies and bees.

A medium sized shrub, it looks splendid towards the back of a border or in woodland gardens but also works well in a large planter, where its size can be kept under control to give a more compact plant. It can even be grown as a low maintenance flowering hedge.

Very easy to look after, ‘Rosea’ is fully hardy and low maintenance. Just cut it back after flowering to allow new branches space to grow. These will carry next year’s flowers.

Supplied as an established plant in a 2 L pot, ready for planting and growing to a height and spread of 2 m (2˝ ft).

Plant Information

Top Tips

  • Weigelas are happiest in a sheltered position in fertile, slightly moist and well-drained soil, preferably in full sun or dappled, light shade.

Care Guide

  • Before planting, incorporate plenty of well-rotted manure or garden compost into the soil.
  • Plant Weigela at the same depth as they were planted in their pots.
  • Backfill the planting hole and firm the soil and water well.
  • If growing in a container, ensure that the plant is kept well-watered, even through the winter - do not allow the soil to dry out.
  • Naturally branching so no need for time-consuming pruning, just cut back after flowering, cut back flowering branches by at least two thirds to encourage growth of new shoots that will flower in the following season.
  • On older plants, remove one or two of the older stems to the base and cutting back the flowered stems to strong shoots below the spent flowers.
