Genus:  Weigela
A deciduous shrub, wiegela has gracefully arching branches studded with pink tubular flowers. Dwarf, medium, and tall cultivars are now available for the front, middle, or back of the border: 'Midnight Wine' has dark burgundy foliage and pink flowers; 2- to 3-foot-tall and wide 'Minuet' has purplish-green foliage and magenta-rose and pale purple flowers; and 'Dark Horse' has dark burgundy foliage and deep pink flowers. Many other garden-worthy cultivars are available.
Care:  Provide fertile garden soil. Weigelas are best in full sun. Remove dead wood and old canes to rejuvenate mature plants.
Propagation:  From greenwood cuttings in early summer or semi-ripe cuttings in mid-summer.
Problems:  Root knot nematode, Japanese beetles, scale insects, Verticillium wilt, and twig dieback.
