Plant spacing is based on the ultimate width of the plants. This figure is normally given as a range; for example, 3-5’. If you live in a cold climate and/or want plants to fill in more quickly, plan to space at the shorter end of the range. If you live in a warm climate, are on a limited budget, or are willing to wait longer for plants to touch, use the higher end of the range. Using the larger number is recommended when calculating distance from a building or structure. There’s really no such thing as "maximum spacing": if you don’t want your plants to touch, you can space them as far apart as you’d like. All plant spacing is calculated on center, or in other words, the centers of the plants are spaced one half of their eventual width apart:
Unless you are planting in a straight line, as you might for hedges or edging, space your plants in a staggered or zig-zag pattern for a more interesting and naturalistic look:

DescriptionSimply the cutest weigela! Snippet Lime™ weigela (Weigela florida) is a dwarf variety that naturally grows with a neat, rounded habit. It's perfect for adding shape and color to the landscape or garden. This particular selection combines bright lime-green foliage with dozens of pink, trumpet-shaped flowers that bloom in spring, along with other weigela, then reappear throughout summer and fall.
Plant this useful dwarf weigela as a specimen in your landscape or flower bed, or use it to create a low hedge or edging. It's not only incredibly versatile, but it's low maintenance too! Plant this shrub in a sunny spot and watch pollinators flock to it year after year, with little work from you!DetailsBotanical name:Weigela florida 'VUKOZ047213' Patent#: USPP 30,264 Common name: Weigela Zone: 4 - 8 Sun exposure: Full sun (6+ hours sun) Height x width: 1-2' tall and wide Flower color: Pink Foliage color: Lime green Season of Interest: Spring-fall Uses: Specimen, low hedge, perennial gardens. How To GrowSoil: Grow in any moist but well-drained soil. Tolerates some dryness once established. Light: Full sun (6+ hrs/day) Water: Average 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 & Pruning: 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.
My order arrived in the heat of summer and was dried out. Great Garden Plants replaced the order and shipped at a time that was cooler fior my climate. The plants are great. Really appreciate the great customer service and standing behind your product.

The plants leaves are now very large- all 10 plants. It looks like it is reverting back to a parent plant. Not sure what to expect. very few flowers. Would not recommend.
Hello Pamela! Weigelas that are stressed won't push out as many flowers. make sure it is getting at least 6 hours of sun per day or it will not flower. It's also very likely your weigela already had their first round of blooms in our greenhouses and now need more time to establish to push out new blooms. Let us know if you have any other questions, we're happy to help!
