Description Weigela is a genus of between six and 38 species of deciduous shrubs in the family Caprifoliaceae, growing to 3-15' tall. All are natives of eastern Asia. The genus is named after the German scientist Christian Ehrenfried Weigel.The first species to be collected for Western gardens, Weigela florida, distributed in North China, Korea and Manchuria, was found by Robert Fortune and imported to England in 1845. Following the opening of Japan to Westerners, several Weigela species and garden versions were 'discovered' by European plant-hunters in the 1850's and 60's, though they may have already been known to locals.Photographed in the gardens of my new home...Oh the beauty there astounds me each day!Composed in Photoshop.
