Do these need cut down in winter?
Ann M on Sep 30, 2016
BEST ANSWER: I planted this Weigela in my mother's yard many years ago. We have never
cut it down in winter, only trimmed it some in the spring.

The Wine and Roses was especially beautiful this past spring. I've planted one in my yard this year, and only hope it does as well.
Does it take full sun ?
Janice B on Sep 16, 2016
BEST ANSWER: It's fine with partial sun. In fact, I think actually it grows better in partial sun than in full sun, although the flowers won't be quite so dense.
When is the best time to prune wegelia?
Suziq on May 16, 2017
BEST ANSWER: Weigela should be pruned right after flowering, whenever that is in your growing zone. Weigela produces flowers on last season's wood, so if you prune too late, the shrub won't have time to grow wood for next year's blooming period.

Very pretty
Very pretty dark pink blooms set off by dark leaves. Mine is about 3 years old and the only problem I have with it is that it looks a little spindly. It has several long arching branches but it's not very full. It may be that I have to cut it back to encourage more fullness. I'm going to wait until the blooms fade though because they are very pretty and dramatic looking. :)

Received this last year. All 3 ordered made it through our Idaho winter. They are tiny though...and haven't grown much. 4 inches tall at most. Hopefully they start growing.
