Unlike many of its larger cousins, Weigela florida 'Minor Black' won’t ever outgrow its welcome in your garden! This neat and compact variety reaches just 75cm tall, making it ideal for even the smallest spaces. With such striking dark foliage and contrasting bright pink blooms, you might prefer to grow it on the patio in a more prominent position. This hardy deciduous shrub is undemanding, and flourishes in most locations. Its nectar rich blooms also make this a great choice for wildlife areas where it will always attract attention from bees. Height and Spread: 75cm (30").

Plant height and spread is seasonal therefore we list by pot size rather than a defined plant size. The height and spread of the plant delivered will vary depending on the season, meaning arrival images are an indication only.

Grow Weigela in a sunny or semi shaded position, in any well drained soil. Prior to planting, incorporate plenty of well rotted manure or garden compost into the soil. Plant Weigela at the same depth as they were planted in their pots. Backfill the planting hole and water well to settle the soil.
Water regularly throughout the growing season until young plants are fully established. In spring, apply a mulch of well rotted manure or garden compost to the base of the plant. Weigela requires little pruning. After flowering cut back stems to a healthy bud and remove a fifth of the old stems to ground level.
