Delicate light pink hues of Weigela blossoms speak of gentleness, happiness and love. Weigela is one of my favorite shrubs at Connecticut Country House. This hardy shrub loves plenty of sunlight and well-drained soil. She gets fertilized with Holly Tone every spring, and I give her plenty of room in my back border where she happily spreads her branches to about 10 feet across! Weigela is on my “must have” list for back of garden borders.
