The Weigela Florida 'Black and White' is a striking and unique cultivar of the Weigela Florida plant, known for its captivating contrast of dark foliage and bright flowers. This deciduous shrub, native to Asia, particularly China and Korea, belongs to the honeysuckle family (Caprifoliaceae) and is a popular choice in ornamental gardens across the United Kingdom.

The most distinctive feature of 'Black and White' is its dark, almost black, purple foliage, which provides a stunning backdrop for the profusion of crisp white tubular flowers that appear in late spring to early summer. These blossoms are a magnet for pollinators like bees and butterflies, making it an excellent choice for wildlife-friendly gardens.

This Weigela cultivar typically reaches a mature height of 1.5 to 2 meters and has a slightly wider spread. It has an arching growth habit that gives it an elegant and graceful appearance. 'Black and White' is a hardy shrub that thrives in well-draining soil and prefers full sun to partial shade, making it adaptable to various garden conditions.

Maintenance is relatively straightforward, involving regular pruning to shape the shrub and remove any dead or overcrowded branches. It's advisable to prune immediately after flowering to encourage new growth and enhance the overall appearance of the plant.

The Weigela Florida 'Black and White' adds a touch of drama and contrast to garden landscapes, whether used as a specimen plant or as part of a mixed border. Its dark foliage and striking white flowers make it an eye-catching addition to any garden, and its low-maintenance requirements make it a favourite among gardeners in the UK seeking both beauty and ease of care in 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.
