Weigela Florida Variegata
Try saying that one after a glass of wine 😉 this is a beautiful shrub. It’s a bit leggy as I hadn’t seen it flower before and wasn’t sure we’d keep it when we first moved in but it flowers like CRAZY and after a bit of TLC it’s in much better condition already. At the end of the season I’ll give it a good pruning and next year it will be even more spectacular 😍
I almost lost it to a pear slug infestation last year. I chopped it down and burnt the branches and area around the shrub. Thought for sure I’d killed it but didn’t want it spreading to my other viburnums. I don’t use poison in my garden and the birds weren’t eating the slugs so I made fire, a little risky but it worked.

If you are looking for a small, compact, easy maintenance, flowering shrub Little Princess Spirea is it! They only grow to be about 2-3’ tall and wide. They make a great shrub for landscape beds around a house, walkway, or boarders. They bloom a beautiful shade of pink in early-mid summer. •
When planning your perennial garden, don't forget to include a few evergreens and some flowering shrubs. The evergreens will provide winter interest, and give your eye a place to "rest" in the summer. The flowering shrubs can add colour at a time when your perennials may be resting, and add structure and height as well.
This pretty overgrown shrub has seen many springs in our front garden planted before we moved here almost 5 years ago.
It’s so pretty and is always covered in bees! 🐝
I had to google to find out its name - Weigela ive been meaning to take cuttings and plant it in the garden but I’ve never tried this before...
If anyone has any tips or advice on how to grow something from a cutting ide be most grateful! Something’s telling me a need rooting powder? But I’m probably wrong 😂 have no idea what I’m talking about 🤦🏻♀️ •
Nandina Sunset is a great architectural evergreen shrub with excellent foliage colour, clusters of white flowers during summer followed by red berries.
When the sun shines it time to take a stroll through the garden and enjoy the blooms.

Azaleas in my garden. This lovely shrub has reached its peak now and is blooming fantastic! 😁 I’m not sure about the ‘fragrance’ of it, however. Put it this way, I always know it’s there before I see it 😂💚
