Weigela aff. hortensis - BSWJ10808

Pot Size: 15 litre
Price: £35.00
From a seed collection we gathered in the autumn of 2005, in Iwate District close to the seashore at Miyako north-eastern Japan, a town featured on today's news as being wiped out by the tsunami of 2011. Where this species was locally common forming colonies of upright grey-brown stems clothed in large leaves to 10cm long densely woolly below, still retaining the terminal clusters of elongated seed capsules that had succeeded bright pink funnel-shaped flowers born in May-June. Easily grown in any type of drained fertile soil in sun or shade, flowering better in sun.
