Weigela bushes typically have beautiful pink or white flowers that bloom profusely in early spring, then again in late summer. The trumpet-like flowers are very attractive to hummingbirds. The bushes typically grow to a height of 1 to 6 feet tall, and similar width. Our most popular shrubs are the dwarf variety and only get 1-2 feet tall.
