Gardeners' Notes:

Positive cntryrocks On Apr 30, 2012, cntryrocks from Princeton, KS wrote:

My plant has stayed very small--only about 18" x 18 ". It has been growing for 5 years. During that same time period, the wine and roses weigela in the same bed has reached about 6 ft. X 5 ft. I haven't trimmed it at all. It is a tedy, compact plant. Very pretty too. Definitely suited for the front of the border.

I thought this small shrub preformed great in my yard. I have 6 plants in two different areas, one is on the east side of my yard (pictured) with 1/2 day of shade and it flowers wonderfully. They started a little leggy/open in the spring but soon filled in with blooms.

'Minuet' weigela is a must have if you have a small garden. It tops off at only 3 feet yet the flowers are the same size as any standard weigela. The flowers are a lovely pinkish-red and plants are very floriferous. I use mine in a rock garden setting.
