Shrub ID

Sian LeesSian Lees Posts: 5

This is my first spring in my new house - so am discovering a whole host of plants and shrubs as they come into flower. Very exciting.

I was hoping someone could help with this one please.

I thought the flowers looked similar to that of Weigela Red Prince... but the shrub just seems bigger than any photos I can find to compare.

Thanks in advance.

    It's a Weigela, but I'm not familiar with the cultivar. They can make very large bushes.

    when you prune it, you can propagate the cuttings to make new plants too if you have spaces you need filling.

    When I first took this garden on the weigelas had got really out of hand, I sawed them right off to almost ground level, the following year there wasnt too many flowers but this year they are loaded.

    Gardening on the wild, windy west side of Dartmoor.
