Variegated Weigela (Weigela florida 'Variegata')
Weigela florida 'Variegata'
Just a quick post for I am off to work today. These are a couple of shots from the Estate’s Weigela Collection. I am not even bringing my camera to work today, as I know I will be too busy to shot any pictures. I have decided to take Sunday off so maybe I will go to Wave Hill or the NYBG for a few snaps.
I usually like to have everybody gardens open by Memorial Day but it just isn’t going to happen this year. I should be able to get it done by next week and then I will have some time to concentrate on some of the new work I have on tap. It has been a heck of a season so far. I just wish I had more time to photograph it.
The various Weigela have been blooming for a few weeks. It is one of my favorite shrubs because all it needs is a bit of pruning and it is very reliable for blooming every year.
This is 'Pink Princess'
Here is a short list of the cultivars I am growing (there are others but I can’t think of them right now):
‘Wine and Roses’
