Middendorff weigela is a small shrub, native to lower parts of Russia, northern China, and various areas of Korea and Japan. It does not usually flower as profusely as common weigela but has larger blooms of a colour that is unique for this species. The first mention about its sale in England dates back to 1850’s.

Mango is a fantastic new variety of Middendorff weigela, raised by John. G. Hillier in 2011, and patented in 2017 as PP28346. Compared to the species, Mango is a compact and freely branching shrub. From mid spring it makes pale yellow, broadly funnel-shaped flowers with a distinct orange throat. They are 3-4 cm long, lightly scented, and bloom until early July. Pruning can be done immediately after flowering – cut off flowering branches by at least two thirds to encourage growth of new twigs that will flower in the following season. Leaves are light to mid green, broadly oval, pointed, and deciduous.

Weigelas thrive in semi-fertile, slightly moist soil, preferably in full sun. They can take heavy and compacted soil, too, but will need more time to grow nice. Hardy to some -29°C (USDA zone 5) but not suitable for outdoor pots (risk of drying out in winter).
