Weigela Snippet® Dark Pink Description
Snippet™ Dark Pink weigela makes the perfect flowering shrub for your garden or landscape. This nifty little weigela from Proven Winners naturally grows with a cute, dense, rounded habit that gives it immediate impact. At just 1-2’ tall and wide, it also takes up just a fraction of the space of conventional weigela, so it works just about anywhere in the garden. Snippet Dark Pink weigela blooms along with other weigela in late spring, then continues to put out new crops of deep pink, trumpet-shaped flowers through frost.

Soil: Grow in any moist but well-drained soil. Leaf edges will turn brown if exposed to very dry or very hot conditions.
Light: Full sun (6+ hrs/day) to part shade
Space: Min. 2' apart.
Fertilizing: Apply a granular rose or garden fertilizer in early spring if desired. Never fertilize weigela past mid-summer, as this increases likelihood of winter damage to any new growth the plant puts on as a result.
Winterizing: A good 2-3" layer of mulch is recommended.
Maintenance: Weigela bloom on old wood so should only be pruned after blooming. Once plants are mature (after at least 5 years in the ground), you may want to remove a few of the oldest stems each year to keep it producing vigorous young growth. Note: weigela are one of the last shrubs to leaf out in spring, so don't panic if you aren't seeing signs of life even if everything else in your yard has started to grow.
