Weigela flower and look best in full sun – a minimum of six hours a day, with eight or more preferable. Snippet™ weigela do not need pruning, trimming, or deadheading in order to rebloom. However, if you wish to give them a trim, do so immediately after their late spring bloom. Weigela benefit from having the oldest stems removed every other year or so after their first 3-5 years in the ground. Old, thick stems are not as productive in terms of flowers or foliage so can cause the plant to look less colorful and lush. Weigela are very late to leaf out in spring, so be patient if you don’t see signs of life on your plant, despite the fact that other plants in your landscape may be starting to grow.
