Frequently Asked Questions(FAQ)

Which is the best weigela?

‘Golden Jackpot’ Weigela This weigela is prized for its foliage as it keeps color alive in the garden from spring until frost.

How do you keep Weigelas blooming?

Pruning and deadheading: Remove any dead branches in early spring when the shrub is starting to leaf out. Since weigela blooms on the previous year’s growth, any other pruning and shaping should wait until after spring flowering.

Do weigela need lots of water?

Newly planted weigela bushes need consistent water until they’re established. After that, you probably won’t have to water unless it’s an unusually dry season. Feed an established plant once a year in early spring. Use a slow-release fertilizer designed for trees and shrubs.
