Weigela Hedge Plants Description

Variegated Weigela is a popular, flowering deciduous shrub originating from the far east. It has very attractive cream and mid-green variegated leaves and lovely strong pink coloured spring flowers that last into summer. Even though Weigela is often grown as a shrub adding seasonal colourful interest to a garden, it also looks extremely attractive grown into a hedge. However, being fairly slow growing, this can take a little time.

Its bushy, compact nature and abundant oval shaped leaves provide dense coverage throughout spring, summer and into autumn. The prolific clusters of pink, funnel shaped flowers on short arching stems offer a highly colourful contrasting in the warmer months adding further visual interest. The flowers are also highly attractive to pollinators such as bees, particularly bumblebees, butterflies and other small garden visitors.

Weigela is one of the easiest plants to grow and maintain and why it is an exellent plant for gardening beginners or those with busy lives that want a low maintenance yet attractive option. It is relatively pest free and will grow well in all soil varieties as long as they are well-drained and fertile. For light conditions it grows best in sun but will tolerate partial shade well. It will also grow in most locations whether exposed or sheltered.

Further Information
Further Information

You’ll see our recommended planting densities for each size and root type listed in the product grid. We suggest that you use these as a guide, taking into consideration how long you’re willing to wait to see your finished hedge. As a rough indication bare roots can be planted at anything from 3 to 7 per metre and cell grown between 4 and 6 - the higher densities here would need to be planted in a double staggered row or zig-zag.

For more information on planting distances please see our planting density advice section.

Pruning Advice
Pruning Advice

Weigela responds well to hard renovative pruning where necessary and should be pruned immediately after flowering in late spring/summer. Pruning at this time will ensure that next year's flower growth will develop in abundance as Weigela flowers develop on the new wood that grows from summer onwards.

If your Weigela plant does not bloom well, it may be that pruning has not been sufficient the previous year or that the wood is too old and thick. In this case, you can rejuvenate the plant by cutting the larger, thicker stems back quite severely to their base to encourage new wood to grow. The best time to do this is January to February when the plant is dormant but not in freezing conditions.

Plants that have not been sufficiently pruned for a number of years and are made up mostly of wood 1 inch in thickness or bigger benefit from being cut back all round to around 4-5" above the soil line after which they can re-establish. This can take a year or two so patience is required. The end result however will be a renewed, healthier plant with more abundant flowers and a good basis for growth year on year as long as regular seasonal pruning is undertaken.
