see this climbing over a 6 foot fence, it was beautiful, want to buy on, but can't identify it, can a
nyone help ?
Might be a Weigela, but that's not a climber.
thanks for that, seeing it tumbling over a 6 ft fence assumed it was a climber.
A large shrub
Weigela - lovely plant.
I'd say Weigela Bristol Ruby
or W. Newport Red. one of those two
It looks almost like rhododendron griersonianum - from the leaves and flower colour.
Yes Weigela- pruning flowered shoots makes the flowers better next year, and needs the old stems removing periodically. I rejuvenated 3 in my new house by cutting to a low framework- flowers great now.- before only had 3 or 4 sprigs of flowers
If you can get a 4-5 incj cutting or 2 you will find it takes really well.- Propagator or flower pot with a plastic bag over it works really well.
when i first saw it i thought it was a Bougainvillea , i have just moved back from southern france, so had several in the garden, one, almost an identical flower to the weigela, but knew it couldn't be in the UK !!
thanks for all your input and advice.
