Weigela florida   Weigelia I

Weigelia florida

This popular garden shrub from China can occasionally be found in the wild and this particular specimen was miles from the nearest garden. Stace reckons that most of the garden plants are actually hybrids but there isn't enough information to split those which have somehow escaped. Weigela florida is unlikely to persist in the countryside which explains why there is so little recorded in the British Isles.
