Weigela Shrubs

Deutzia & Weigela

johnst added on July 19, 2014 | Answered

These shrubs are 10 ft tall. Very woody with foliage only at the top. I'd like to try & rejuvenate them.
How & when would be best to do it? Thanks.

These are both strong species, and I think you'll be very pleased with the results of a good hard pruning. Here's a general article on pruning: https://www.gardeningknowhow.com/ornamental/shrubs/shgen/rejuvenation-pruning-tips.htm

Treat the deutzia the same way.
