Weigela coraeensis

For sale by Bluebell Nursery

This grower is sure of this plant identification.

An unusual shrub native to Japan, Weigela coraeensis has long-lasting, white, slightly fragrant flowers which turn pink then red, giving the illusion of a plant bearing three differently coloured flowers. These eye-catching flowers stand out well against the large, bright green leaves.

A spectacular yet often overlooked plant and a beautiful flowering addition to any garden.

Supplied Size: 3L containers (40 - 60 cm tall)
