Weigela Nana Variegata is a small deciduous shrub that is known for its attractive variegated foliage and delicate pink flowers.
Best position: Weigela Nana Variegata prefers a position in full sun to partial shade in moist, well-drained soil that is rich in organic matter. This shrub is a compact plant that grows up to 1 metre tall and wide. It is ideal for small gardens, rock gardens, and as a border plant.
Flowering time: Weigela Nana Variegata produces delicate pink, funnel-shaped flowers that bloom in late spring and early summer. The flowers are highly attractive to pollinators and add a splash of colour to the garden. The foliage of Weigela Nana Variegata is also stunning, with creamy-white and green variegated leaves that provide interest throughout the growing season.
When to feed: Weigela Nana Variegata will benefit from a balanced fertiliser applied in early spring. A liquid feed every two weeks during the growing season can also provide nutrients for the plant. Avoid over-fertilising the plant as it can lead to leggy growth and weak stems.
When to prune: Weigela Nana Variegata does not require regular pruning, but deadheading the spent blooms can encourage the plant to produce more flowers. The shrub can be pruned lightly in the late winter or early spring to maintain its shape and remove any damaged or diseased branches. Note that the plant can be susceptible to powdery mildew, so avoid overhead watering and ensure good air circulation around the plant.
