Buy Weigela 'Florida Variegata' weigela or weigelia: White-edged, grey-green leaves

This shrub is deciduous so it will lose all its leaves in autumn, then fresh new foliage appears again each spring.

  • Position: full sun or partial shade
  • Soil: fertile, well-drained soil
  • Rate of growth: slow-growing to average
  • Flowering period: May to June
  • Hardiness: fully hardy

    Masses of funnel-shaped, pale pink flowers on graceful arching stems in May and June and white-edged, grey-green leaves. Although this deciduous, variegated shrub prefers fertile, well-drained soil it will thrive almost anywhere. Best pruned each year in mid-summer, it looks lovely grown in front of a sunny fence or wall.

  • Garden care: Once established prune each year in mid-summer after flowering, removing one or two of the older stems to the base and cutting back the flowered stems to strong shoots below the spent flowers.

Can I take cuttings from this bush: Weigela 'Florida Variegata' and if so, when is the best time to do this?


Hello, These plants tend to root very easily from either softwood cuttings taken in late spring or semi-ripe cuttings in midsummer.


How and when should you take cuttings,if at all?x


Hello, These plants can be propagated by softwood cuttings in early summer, semi-ripe cuttings in midsummer or hardwood cuttings in autumn or winter. To take softwood cuttings in early summer, cut lengths of semi-ripened stems about 10cm long, removing them from the parent plant just above a bud. Using sharp secateurs or a knife, trim the bottom of the cutting to just below a leaf node and pinch out the growing tip. Remove the lower leaves and dip the base of the cutting in hormone rooting liquid or powder. Using a pencil or dibber, make a hole in the cutting compost, insert the base of the cutting and gently firm it in. Label and water well, and cover with a plastic bag and leave somewhere warm and bright, but with some protection from direct sunlight during the hottest part of the day. It is important that the plastic bag is removed 2 or 3 times a week for 15 minutes or so. Alternatively place in a heated propagator with a bottom heat of 18-24C. Keep the compost moist but not waterlogged and after 6 - 10 weeks your cutting should be well-rooted and you can harden them off and pot them up. To take semi-ripe cuttings in midsummer, select a healthy shoot from this season's growth and cut a length 4-6inches long just above a node. Remove all except the top 2 leaves, cut a sliver of bark from one side of the base of the stem and dip in rooting powder. Pot up in potting compost and water well. Keep the cuttings in a humid, frost-free place, ideally with bottom heat. Rooting will usually occur by autumn. Hardwood cuttings can be taken in late autumn to late winter. After the plant has finished flowering, select a healthy shoot from the new growth and cut it to 4-6 inches just above a node. Remove all except the top 2 leaves, cut a sliver of bark from one side of the base of the stem and dip in rooting powder. Pot up in potting compost and water well. Keep the cuttings in a humid, frost-free place. In winter they can take up to 3 months to root.


Weigela florida 'Variegata' Hello Today I received my order - Weigela florida 'Variegata' - excellently packed and in good condition. Fantastic service, thank you. Do I remove the coconut matting placed on top of the soil before planting? Thanks Jean

Hello Jean, The mat can be removed as this is just a way to keep the weeds at bay while the plants are in their pots. Hope this helps. Helen Plant Doctor

Early-flowering summer shrubs

Many of the earlier-flowering summer shrubs make good partners for shrub roses. They tend to be in the same colour range: sometimes flowering just before and sometimes with the main flush, but often fragrantly. Abelia, Deutzias and Kolkwitzias fall into t
