The Weigela Florida 'Magical Rainbow' is a captivating and ornamental deciduous shrub that hails from the honeysuckle family, Caprifoliaceae. This enchanting garden gem is celebrated for its striking foliage and exquisite blossoms, making it a cherished addition to landscapes in the United Kingdom and beyond.

One of the most remarkable features of 'Magical Rainbow' is its multicolored leaves, which undergo a mesmerizing transformation throughout the growing season. In spring, the foliage emerges with a vibrant blend of green, cream, and pink hues, creating a kaleidoscope of colours that instantly captures the eye. As summer approaches, the leaves intensify in their pigmentation, creating a stunning backdrop for the next highlight of this shrub's beauty: its prolific trumpet-shaped flowers.

During late spring to early summer, 'Magical Rainbow' bursts into a profusion of tubular blooms. These delicate flowers appear in shades of pink and white, forming clusters that cover the arching branches of the shrub. Their sweet and subtle fragrance attracts pollinators like bees and butterflies, enhancing the garden's biodiversity and charm.

This cultivar typically reaches a height and spread of around 1.5 to 2 meters, making it an ideal choice for hedging, borders, or as a standalone specimen. Its easy-going nature and adaptability to various soil types and lighting conditions make it an excellent choice for gardeners of all levels of experience.

'Magical Rainbow' is a low-maintenance shrub, requiring minimal pruning to maintain its shape and size. Regular deadheading after the flowering season can encourage repeat blooms, while a light trim in late winter can help rejuvenate the plant and ensure a healthy, vigorous growth in the coming season.

In conclusion, Weigela Florida 'Magical Rainbow' is a captivating and versatile shrub that adds a burst of colour and elegance to any garden or landscape in the United Kingdom. With its enchanting foliage, abundant flowers, and ease of care, this cultivar has rightfully earned its place as a beloved ornamental shrub for British garden enthusiasts.

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).
