Buy Weigela middendorffiana 'Mango' weigela / weigelia: A tempting new form

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: average
  • Flowering period: May and June
  • Hardiness: fully hardy

    This is a striking and reliable new form, that has only just been released onto the market. With the emergence of the foliage in spring, it forms an upright mound of lush leafy stems, which in late spring to early summer are topped with open clusters of creamy-yellow bell-shaped flowers, each with a distinctly mottled orange-pink throat.

  • Garden care: Once established prune each year in midsummer 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.

A beautiful shrub

A beautiful addition to the border, unusual flower shape and colour. I grow it between a Rosa Mutabilis and a Physocarpus diable d'or and it looks stunning. Took a while to establish but worth persevering with.

Lovely small shrub

I bought this shrub last year and planted it out in a border in full sun, then I decided I didn't like where I'd put it so moved it into a different place in the same border. Later on I decided I'd move it again as the hot sun last year had burned the leaves so I moved it to another partly shaded area, I pruned it lightly, watered it and left it. Today, early April I've been into the garden and the shrub is full of nearly open buds. Despite the heavy rain and winds we've had during the last week, the shrub has stood up very well despite daffodils flopping over it!! I can certainly recommend this very hardy plant which seems to take whatever is thrown at it.

Within two weeks of receiving this plant it dropped all it's leaves. Despite giving it lots of TLC it hasn't really recovered. Fingers crossed it might revive in spring

The info about ultimate dimensions is most helpful. No one likes buying shrubs etc. and within three, years or so, having to disfigure it by hacking it back to fit in its location.

Planted this about 5 weeks ago and the leaves have gone brown around the edges. Hasn't flowered yet. Any ideas what ive done wrong? I've kept it well watered.

Hello, There are a number of reasons why this may have happened and these include, too much or too little water, planting too deeply, too much fertiliser, or something in the soil that the plant does not like (builders rubble, animal pee etc).

Why are the leaves of my Mango Weigellia going brown and crisping. It's in good fertile soil in partial sun and shade.It was planted about 2 months ago, kept watered. It has however flowered very well. Birdsong

Hello, This scorching may be caused by a number of things. The most likely causes include a lack of water, but it could also be caused by dog or cat pee, or strong winds.

Is this plant evergreen?

Bobinog

Hello, all the Weigela's (including this one) are deciduous, so will lose their leaves in the autumn.

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
