Weigela florida ‘Variegata Nana’ – ​'Variegata Nana' is another lovely older form with gorgeous variegated leaves. Green leaves are prominently edged in butter yellow with some pink highlights.

Genus Overview: Weigela

Common Name: Weigela

Weigela are easy-natured shrubs with spring funnel-shaped flowers in axillary cymes blossoming on 2nd year wood. Weiglea is happy in average to good draining soils in sun. All W. florida cultivars bloom in middle to late spring. They are useful, forgiving components in mixed plantings with either perennials or other shrubs. They are best planted with companions that offer autumn and winter interest as Weigela is coarse when the foliage drops. Originating in Japan our offerings are of garden origin except for wonderful W. subsessilis which is from China and flowers extra early in the growing season – long before W. florida. All of the following are cutting grown.
