Weigelas are easily grown, undemanding plants that soon develop into fine leafy shrubs with showy early summer flowers and, in some cases, attractive variegated foliage. Varieties of both kinds have evolved from the most popular species, W. florida, a Far Eastern species introduced in 1848 and used many times since to sire new hybrids. ' Variegata' is one of the best variegated shrubs for a warm sunny site, smaller and more compact than the species, with dense cream and green leaves, and prolific rose-pink blooms. The Royal Horticultural Society has given it their prestigious Award of Garden Merit (AGM).
