do they resist slugs?
Anita S on May 5, 2016
BEST ANSWER: I am not sure about slugs as we planted our Weigela florida against a small
weathered fence that hides the air conditioner on the south front of our house. It is sunny and dry there and I have only ever seen slugs on the north side of our yard when it has been very wet. Our plants are doing very well there for the second season in the ground.

How large are the plants when they arrive?

Can I plant this bush near the fruit tree? If yes, how close i can plant it. Thank you
Elena on Feb 28, 2016
BEST ANSWER: Since this weigela doesn't mind growing in partial shade, it should be fine as an underplanting near fruit trees. Just keep in mind the mature size of the shrub so that it doesn't crowd your tree's trunk and create an environment where fungal issues could thrive. Leave at least 2 to 3 feet of space between your tree's trunk and the weigela.
