Snippet Lime® Weigela florida
A flower powerhouse in a small, garden-friendly package!
Snippet® weigelas are the best thing to happen to this spring-blooming favorite in years: they rebloom abundantly and naturally grow as a dwarf, rounded mound. They fit perfectly in just about any sunny spot in your landscape to add appealing structure and months of color. Snippet Lime® weigela has glowing lime-green foliage that perfectly sets off the vivid pink blooms. They appear in late spring along with other weigelas, but then they continue to bloom all through summer with waves of fresh flowers. No deadheading required - deer resistant, too! Available in better garden centers in spring 2019.
Top reasons to grow Snippet Lime® weigela:
- Reblooming: provides months of flowers instead of just a few weeks.
- Dwarf habit ensures it works in any sunny spot that could use sprucing up.
- Vivid lime-green foliage provides cointrast and color all season.Continuous Bloom or RebloomerFoliage InterestAttracts:HummingbirdsResists:DeerRabbitsSmall or Miniature

This rounded dwarf weigela works well to add color to any landscaping. Because it is rarely without flowers from late spring through fall, it also makes a really nice addition to flower beds and perennial gardens.Maintenance Notes:
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.Snippet Lime® Weigela florida 'VUKOZ047213' USPP 30,264, Can PBRAF
