Q.Pruning Wine & Rose Weigela

Zone Plainfield, IL 60544 | ghschaff added on September 7, 2017 | Answered

Last fall, 2016, I planted five of the above weigela. They are growing terrific, already with heights approaching 3 feet, but straggley. I do not want them to get higher than 3 ft, and prefer shorter, more dense bushes. How and when should I trim them back to promote healthy growth next year to move towards my goal? Thanks,

Gary Schaffner

These should be pruned in late spring to avoid destroying the next seasons flowers, as they flower from older wood. Trim these branches by only 1/3. This article will help:https://www.gardeningknowhow.com/ornamental/shrubs/weigela/pruning-weigela.htm
