Plant Species of the genus Weigela

Information about this genus
Name: Weigela
Cultivation: CULTIVATION: They do well in moist but well-drained fertile soil in sun or partial shade. Propagate by sowing seed in autumn in an area protected from winter frosts or from half-hardened cuttings in summer. Seed may not come true, as weigelas hybridize freely.
Description: The 10 or 12 species of this genus within the Caprifoliaceae family are deciduous long-lived shrubs with opposite oblong to elliptic leaves. From eastern Asia, their natural habitat is scrubland and the edges of woods. Cultivated for their bell- or funnel-shaped flowers that are produced in late spring and early summer, they have pink, red, white or sometimes yellow blooms, growing on the previous year?s wood.
