Weigela Florida,for Sarahm..

As requested,Sarah..this years new foliage,after cutting back hard after flowering,last year..No sign of any flowers,yet,so maybe it's taking a year out,or it might be a lot later this year..Hope this helps you to make a decision..I'm still glad I did it :o)

It looks very happy and Healthy and the foliage in itself is very attractive! You have done a great job with the haircut, have you been practising on Russell lol

I cut my Weigela back hard last spring too, and it hasn't flowered this year, even though it has grown back to over 6 ft tall lol :D

They must have put all their energy into growing well for us,Hywel..maybe they will surprise us later,this year? but just wait till next year,they should be wonderful :o)

One of my favourite shrubs. I don't have it any more, but I recently bought a Weigeila with golden foliage called Briant Rubidor. I love the name! But I'll always love W. Florida, it's such a light, bright and pretty plant. :))

Lovely neat plant Bloomer it will flower all the better for your tlc next year....or later :o)

No problem,Sarah..glad you approve..at least you know it will recover ok,if you decide to tackle yours..I think it is recommended to take out one or two at a time,then the rest the following year,but I just went for it all at once..:o)
good luck,whatever you decide to do..
