The Weigela Bristol Ruby features a compact and bushy growth habit, reaching a height of about 5 feet (1.5 meters) with a similar spread. Its dense branches are adorned with deep green, ovate-shaped leaves that provide an excellent backdrop for the profusion of ruby-red trumpet-shaped flowers.

One of the highlights of Weigela Bristol Ruby is its abundant flowering.

The vivid red flowers are highly attractive to pollinators, including bees and butterflies, making it a great addition to pollinator-friendly gardens.

Another noteworthy feature of Weigela Bristol Ruby is its exceptional cold hardiness and adaptability.

This robust shrub prefers full sun exposure but can tolerate partial shade, making it versatile for various garden settings.

Gardeners appreciate Weigela Bristol Ruby for its low maintenance requirements. It is generally pest and disease resistant, reducing the need for constant monitoring or treatments. Regular watering and occasional pruning to maintain its shape and promote new growth are typically sufficient to keep this shrub thriving.

Whether used as a focal point in a garden bed, as a stunning hedge, or in mixed shrub borders, Weigela Bristol Ruby never fails to captivate with its radiant red flowers and lush foliage. Its elegant presence and ease of cultivation make it an excellent choice for both novice and experienced gardeners looking to add a touch of vibrant beauty to their outdoor spaces.

About Us

During this time, we have developed a large stock of trees, mature evergreen shrubs, conifers, Japanese maples, cedars and olives. What sets us apart from a generic garden center is solid unwavering focus on trees and some bigger shrubs. You will find thousands of trees, hundreds of varieties and lots of experts who are working on the nursery and more than willing to help you to choose a plant for you.

What you will not find is hot tubs, garden furniture and plastic garden gnomes. In a nutshell, trees is what we know and trees is what we do, and only trees (and some shrubs to go with the trees).
