Weigelas are highly praised and frequently used landscape plants because they are problem-free, profusely flowering shrubs which require little or no maintenance. They are deciduous and commonly grow 1.5-2.5m tall and wide, while new and modern varieties are bred for more compact growth and there are even dwarf cultivars available today. Weigelas come from East Asia (North China, Korea, Japan) and were named after German professor Christian Ehrenfried Weigel (1748-1831) from University of Geifswalg.

MOULIN ROUGE® weigela, overseas sold as FRENCH LACE®, is an attractive mutation of Bristol Ruby variety, found by Andre Briant in 1999. It bears ovate, deciduous leaves that are green in the centre and yellow at margins. Funnel-shaped flowers are bright purple red and appear from end spring until early summer, and may rebloom in late summer. It grows fast into an arching shrub. Patent No. PP12666 was granted in 2002.

Pruning is essential if you want a pretty plant which they can easily be. Since weigelas flower mostly on previous year's wood prune them by one third or even one half right after flowering in June so that they have enough of time to make plenty of new twigs that will mature quickly and bear plenty of flowers in the next season. Use them as screening plants in informal flowering hedges, in parks and public landscapes, or as specimens in small sized gardens.

Weigelas thrive in semi-fertile, slightly moist soil, preferably in full sun, however you can often see them growing in part shade or even complete shade and they still bloom. They can take heavy and compacted soil, too, but will need more time to become nice and bushy. Occasional flooding is not a problem, in fact, they prefer excess water rather than drought. Their hardiness varies with variety, but usually they withstand min. -29 °C (USDA zone 5). In spite of their good hardiness large growing weigelas are not suitable for outdoor pots (risk of drying out in winter).
