1999 weigela

I was lucky enough to have an old weigela on the property when the house was built.  After a little drastic pruning (as in, to the ground!), it came back and has been covered with blossoms every year since.

At its peak, it's quite a traffic stopper!

In mid-summer 2006 (much later than I had instructed), the old landscaper came and did the renewal pruning on the forsythia, mock orange, and weigela, ensuring that these three shrubs, which bloom on last year's wood, would not bloom this year  Then, to add insult to injury, when weeding the beds some weeks later, his crew treated all the new growth on the weigela as weeds and ripped it off!  Needless to say, I have a new landscaper this year.  The weigela spent 2007 slowly growing back from the roots and, of course, did not bloom in the spring.  It's now the end of September and it has put on good growth during the year though it's a relatively slow-growing shrub.  Much to my shock, it now has a number of blossoms on it!  I suppose it may be trying to catch up for lost time but it's strange nonetheless!  Here they are; I expect that it will be back to its old self next year.

It's now late June and one branch of the weigela has burst into bloom, a month later than the rest of the shrub.  Must be confused!
