You may not know this beautiful garden plant but you'll soon grow to love it - weigela (why-jeela) will grow in any kind of good garden soil, is happy in sun or shade, thrives in very cold climates and subtropical ones too (please test this out for yourself and let us know!). Pretty enough for a feature shrub,  easy-care enough for hedging and low maintenance gardens.


We love Eva Rathke for her rich flower colour, cold tolerance, adaptability
