Weigela is a versatile shrub and Snippet Dark Pink Weigela (Weigela florida) fits the bill wherever you want stunning color in a small package. Reaching no more than 2 feet high and wide, Snippet Dark Pink is a gorgeous filler in containers or empty spots of your garden. You can plant a group of the weigelas in a mass or as a groundcover for a carpet of low-growing green leaves below dark pink flowers. The weigela keeps blooming from spring through summer in most conditions.

If you need a low border in your yard or edge to your garden, plant a row of Snippet Dark Pink Weigela shrubs. Or place one or more in a container to serve as a filler around taller plants. The dark pink trumpet-shaped flowers attract hummingbirds, another bonus of this pretty and versatile weigela. Its dwarf size and neat mounded shape make this a weigela you can — and should — plant in any space that needs a colorful spring and summer filler. Deer and rabbits should ignore the plant.

Snippet Dark Pink Weigela Care

Snippet Dark Pink Weigela grows and flowers best in full sun of at least 6 hours a day and up to 8 hours. It is cold hardy to zone 4 and can tolerate heat up to zone 8, ensuring its spot in gardens around the country. Be sure to place your weigela in well-draining soil (or potting mix in a container) and water it regularly, especially in its first year of growth. If you like, add a balanced, slow-release fertilizer around the root zone in spring. The shrub needs little other care, just a light prune for shape as leaf growth appears each spring and removal of oldest or dead branches every few years.

Snippet Dark Pink Weigela Spacing

With its small size, you can squeeze this prolific bloomer into nearly any space in your garden or containers. If you want a row or border effect, space Snippet Dark Pink Weigela shrubs about 1 to 2 feet apart from one plant's center to the next.

Plant Addicts Warranty - 1 Year (Extra Purchase Required)

We encourage all plant lovers to purchase the Plant Addicts Warranty, whether you're a new gardener or an expert. There are many variables outside of anyone's control that can cause a plant to die. Hungry animals, drought, poor soil conditions, over watering, diseases & pests are all good examples of what can cause plants to die. The Plant Addicts Warranty is a 1 year warranty protecting you from all of the unknowns and will replace your plant if something were to happen to it.

The warranty is purchased on a per plant basis and must be purchased at the same time as the plant(s). We will cover 100% of the price of the plant, but the warranty does not cover shipping costs. SImply let us know if your plant has died within 1 year of receiving it and we will get you a new one shipped out as soon as possible (depending on the time of the year and availability). We may ask for photos for documentation purposes, but we try to make the process as easy as possible.

Guarantee and Warranty

Plant Shipping

Below are some factors we consider when determining when to ship the plants depending on the timing of the order.

Winter to Early Spring

We ship only when it's warm enough to plant in your growing zone.
Sometimes plants aren't completely ready to sell and ship in early spring. We will wait until the plants are ready before shipping so you don't get a subpar product.
For Southern plants we will be able to ship much earlier than plants coming from our northern nursery.

Summer

If there is extreme heat we may delay shipping for a week or several weeks.
We review what areas the plants are traveling through as well as your location.

Fall into Winter

We’ll ship plants out all the way up to the end of the fall planting season!

Winter

Get your order in early to reserve your plants for Spring planting!

Once your plant is shipped you’ll receive an automated email with tracking information.
