Trimming my Variegated Dwarf Weigela Plants

Anonymous added on June 24, 2018 | Answered

I am following my printout from you entitled Trimming Weigela-Tips For Pruning Weigela Bushes, which is helpful and I have two questions. 1) Does this apply to my Variegated Plants and 2) when you say cut them back to a point where two branches meet does that mean to cut them off below the joint leaving a single branch or above the joint leaving two cut off short branches? They have just finished blooming and need shaping as well. Any specific advice you can provide will be appreciated. JKM.

Trim canes, twigs and branches by hand, one at a time. Always cut above a flower bud or a shoot where a new twig will appear. Make an angled downward cut on the twig or cane to prevent crushing the twig.
This pruning technique is also for your variegated plant.
