Product Details
Product Details

Weigela florida 'Minor Black' is a compact and colourful variety of Weigela featuring deep purple-green foliage and contrasting vivid pink funnel-shaped flowers. The flowers adorn the plant in abundance in late spring and early summer offering a rich source of nectar to bees, butterflies and other pollinating insects.

Growing to just 75cm height and spread, Weigela florida 'Minor Black' is a small deciduous shrub with lots of character. Its rounded compact form and distinctive colours are ideal for front of border planting or mixed low shrub borders. However, it's also well-suited to raised beds and can be grown in a pot for a colourful addition to patio planting or to brighten any outdoor space.

Weigela florida 'Minor Black' is exceptionally easy to grow and will grow in most positions and locations including shade. However, it prefers sun or dappled shade for the best colour, and a slightly acidic well-drained soil. Trimming is best carried out after flowering at which point it can be cut back to a healthy bud, even down to around a third of the stem.

We'd also recommend cutting at least a fifth of the older stems down to ground level each year which will continually rejuvenate the plant. This will encourage fresh new shoots and branches to grow, in order to keep a bushy, healthy and productive plant and Weigela also looks its best on younger stems. Mulch annually with rotted manure or compost in spring.
