help with leggy weigela

cajun1075March 9, 2013

I have a few Wine and Roses weigelas that I planted about four years ago. They do bloom but are not as full as promised and are very leggy. I am not sure what to do. Please advise. Should I prune them back now or wait?

hard to be precise w/o a picture ..


this type of shrub lends itself well to rejuvenation pruning ... AFTER flowering ... see link

they are a full sun plant.. leggy usually means.. they MIGHT not be getting proper sun ...

i would NEVER simply give them a haircut ... or you will be rejuvenating them in a few years ....

any chance at a picture????


Here is a link that might be useful: link
