Minor Black Weigela

  • by

Weigela middendorffiana – this variety has bright green leaves with pale yellow flowers, often with contrasting markings in the centre of the bell-shaped flowers.Weigela florida ‘Variegata’ – this is one of the best variegated cultivars. It’s smaller and more compact, with cream and green leaves, and pink flowers. The Royal Horticultural Society has given it its prestigious Award of Garden Merit (AGM).Weigelas make the perfect garden shrub. Low-maintenance, they’re easy to grow and work well in a variety of situations, including mixed borders. The leaves of weigela are deciduous and range from dark green to light green, golden and variegated shades. The funnel-shaped flowers are a hit with bumblebees, and range in colour from deep pink to yellow, appearing in early summer.

Weigelas are easy to look after. Prune moderately, after flowering has finished. Established weigelas also respond well to hard pruning if they have outgrown their spot – you can cut back stems to ground level to encourage new growth.To get your weigela shrub off to a good start, always dig a generous hole and add mycorrhizal fungi. Ensure it’s planted at the same depth it was in the pot and water well. In dry conditions, keep watering regularly until you spot signs of growth. Weigela ‘Naomi Campbell’ = ‘Bokrashine’ (PBR) – a compact, bushy, rounded shrub growing to about 1m. The dark green foliage is tinged with bronzy-purple and flowers are a dark pinkish-red. Grow weigela in moist but well-drained soil in full sun to partial shade. Prune back after flowering and mulch annually with a well-rotted compost or leaf mould.Стоимость доставки по Московской области – 500 руб. до МКАД + 50 руб. за каждый км.

Because of its height, it is often used as a ‘thriller’ in the ‘spiller-thriller-filler’ container combination; plant it near the center of the pot, surrounded by smaller plants and those that spill over the edges. It is even sizeable enough that it can be grown alone in a suitable container. Note that when grown in a container, it may not perform exactly as indicated on the tag – this is to be expected. Also note that when growing plants in outdoor containers and baskets, they may require more frequent waterings than they would in the yard or garden. Be aware that in our climate, most plants cannot be expected to survive the winter if left in containers outdoors, and this plant is no exception. Contact our experts for more information on how to protect it over the winter months.Minor Black Weigela will grow to be about 3 feet tall at maturity, with a spread of 4 feet. It has a low canopy. It grows at a medium rate, and under ideal conditions can be expected to live for approximately 30 years.

Does Weigela have smell?
They smell incredible and attract bees, butterflies and hummingbirds. Here is a list of some Weigela that shows how different and amazing they can be. Variegated – This is the variety my neighbor has and it smells divine!
Minor Black Weigela is bathed in stunning clusters of hot pink trumpet-shaped flowers along the branches in late spring. It has attractive burgundy deciduous foliage which emerges dark red in spring. The pointy leaves are highly ornamental but do not develop any appreciable fall colour.

Why are my weigela leaves turning black?
Common Disease & Cultural Problems for Weigela Plants Anthracnose: This is a fungus disease causes brown spots with purple edges on the leaves. The spots turn black in the center; leaves become yellow, dry and fall off. The fungus overwinters in diseased plant debris.
This shrub should only be grown in full sunlight. It prefers to grow in average to moist conditions, and shouldn’t be allowed to dry out. It is not particular as to soil type or pH. It is highly tolerant of urban pollution and will even thrive in inner city environments. This is a selected variety of a species not originally from North America.

Minor Black Weigela is a multi-stemmed deciduous shrub with a mounded form. Its average texture blends into the landscape, but can be balanced by one or two finer or coarser trees or shrubs for an effective composition.
This shrub will require occasional maintenance and upkeep, and should only be pruned after flowering to avoid removing any of the current season’s flowers. It is a good choice for attracting hummingbirds to your yard. It has no significant negative characteristics.A stunning spring-flowering shrub, featuring electric pink trumpet-shaped flowers that attract birds and butterflies; foliage is so dark red it appears black from a distance; perfect for foundations, groups in borders, or a low hedge; needs full sun

Welcome to our plant search tool. This database contains many of the thousands of plants that we carry. There are some notable exceptions. Hundreds of new perennials come out every year and Make It Green has been a leader in making them available to you. Eventually the recent introductions will make it to our plant search tool but every year there will be a lag between our in-store plant selection and this search tool. Unfortunately this search tool can’t cover everything that we will carry this year. We also carry over 100 varieties of rare and unusual evergreens and over 100 varieties of hard-to-find shrubs many of which are not in the plant search. Click on the Plant List button for a list of nearly all the woody plants (trees, shrubs and evergreens) that we have ordered or already have in stock for this coming year.The main reason why weigela Black Minor has become popular with gardeners is the flowering of the shrub twice a year. The first time the shrub is covered with abundant flowers in June – July. This is the last year’s shoots blooming. This fascinating process lasts up to four weeks.

Weigela develops well and blooms, growing on loose soils. Therefore, when planting, it is advisable to add perlite, polystyrene or any other fine-grained drainage mixture to the soil. The soil should be composed of sand and turf in equal proportions. For nutritional value, it is necessary to add part of the compost or well-rotted manure.
Weigela Minor Black looks spectacular in any garden combination. Gardeners argue that the only difficulty in caring for a shrub is getting it right for winter. Weigela will thank for the labors with a lush double flowering.

Are weigela deep rooted?
The root system of a Weigela might grow 12 inches deep or more but the majority of the feeder roots responsible for absorbing nutrients are in the top 6 inches of soil.
Weigela perfectly complements the group planting of green plants. An unpretentious plant can coexist with juniper or thuja. Weigela is often used to shape an alpine slide. Bright foliage and lush flowering shrubs can be used to add volume to a flower bed against a background of stones.When buying a weigela seedling, you should pay attention to the age of the plant. The most suitable for planting in the garden are three-year-old bushes. Weigela, blooming Minor Black, has a hard time transferring to a new place. Younger seedlings rarely take root or get sick for a long time.

Weigela Minor Black reproduces well by self-seeding. It remains for the gardener to transplant the grown seedlings in the spring, choosing the most developed plants.It is noteworthy that Minor Black weigela flowers can change color over time. The pale pink bells get brighter and darker over time. Flowering ends with the formation of fruit bolls with seeds inside.

Weigela Minor Black bushes are planted at a distance of about a meter from each other and from neighboring bushes. If the plant is located near buildings, then you need to retreat 1.5 – 2 m in order to ensure an approach to it from all sides.
The color range of the leaves is from red to dark purple. Some leaf blades become almost black over time. Shrub and flowering are notable. Bright or dark pink flowers cover the crown of the weigela, turning it into a garden decoration. Narrow five-petalled bells are collected in inflorescences of several pieces.

Pruning is carried out after flowering. It is necessary to remove the old branches and cut the young growth in half to give the bush the correct shape. Re-pruning with normal plant development is required no more often than after 2-3 years.
The seeds are harvested in late autumn. No soaking or stimulation is required for germination. Seeds are sown in dry sand and watered until germination. High-quality seed material, subject to humidity and temperature conditions, usually germinates no later than in a month.It is necessary to plant a shrub in a permanent place in open ground in the spring. Weigela Minor Black has very low frost resistance. Saplings take a long time to adapt to a new place. When planting in autumn, the plant does not have time to grow strong enough and may die in winter. In case of late acquisition of weigela, it is better to dig in the seedling in the garden, sprinkling the crown halfway with loose soil. In this state, a young plant can easily overwinter.

Before the onset of frost, the trunk circle is covered with a thick layer of compost. The branches of the plant must be carefully pulled together with twine or wire. After that, wrap it up with kraft paper, agrospan or other insulating material.The main problem with growing weigela Minor Black outdoors is its strong sensitivity to cold. The plant must be covered for the winter. Due to the low winter hardiness of the Minor Black weigela, the culture is not recommended for planting in the northern regions. You need to water the bushes regularly. In this case, it is important to ensure that moisture does not stagnate in the trunk circle. An adult bush requires up to 10 – 15 liters of water. Watering is done more frequently during dry summer months. You can feed fertilizer in the spring with dry preparations, which need to be poured into the trunk circle of each bush. An adult plant requires about 50 g of a mixture of urea, superphosphate and potassium salt in a 2: 2: 1 ratio.

Rodents pose a danger to the plant in winter. To protect the bush from mice, it is necessary to compact the snow in the trunk circle. You can pour water around the weigela. Then the mice will not be able to reach the plant through the ice layer.
Dwarf deciduous shrub reaches a height of no more than a meter. Its shoots are mainly vertical. The dense, lush crown is formed from pointed leaves, different in color. The diameter of the crown of an adult weigela Minor Black shrub usually does not exceed 1 m.

Should Weigela be pruned?
Prune these spring flowering shrubs soon after they have bloomed. Top prune the plant to improve the shape and reduce its size but, be careful not to remove more than 30% of the top growth. Some summer pruning can also be done on particularly vigorous plants but, not after mid-July.
The next dressing should help the shrub form flower buds. This requires about 50 g of superphosphate and potassium sulfate in equal proportions per bush. Top dressing is best done with a liquid nutrient solution under the root.It is imperative to process the cuts on the branches with garden pitch or resin. Weigela is susceptible to fungal diseases, the pathogens of which can penetrate through cuts and wounds on wood.

It is necessary to regularly water future seedlings so that the soil is constantly moist. Rooting is better if you make a film cap or a mini greenhouse for the cuttings. It is imperative to ventilate the seedlings so that condensation on the walls of the shelter does not lead to decay of the plants.
Thrips, aphids and spider mites often infect weigela Minor Black bushes. To control them, you can use any insecticide that is sold to protect against leaf-eating insects.The soil for blooming weigela Minor Black needs alkaline or neutral. It is imperative to make a drainage layer to avoid stagnant moisture and soil acidification. The composition of the soil must be saturated with nutrients.

To grow Weigela Minor Black, you need to choose a place that is illuminated by the sun most of the day. With a lack of light, the branches of the plant quickly become lignified. Such a bush hardly blooms.

Where does a weigela grow best?
Where to grow weigela. Weigela is an easy-going shrub that suits most growing conditions. Plant it in moist but well-drained soil in full sun to partial shade.
Weigelu Minor Black is propagated by cuttings and seeds. A blank of planting material for cuttings is cut in the spring until flower buds are formed. Young branches with green bark are cut with a sharp tool at a 90 degree angle. The length of the workpiece should be no more than 15 cm.The hole for planting weigela Minor Black should be about 50 cm deep. The grown weigela has a fairly large root system. The planting pit is recommended to be made in the form of a square with a side of 50 – 60 cm.Sequencing:

A shrub with fragile branches and delicate flowers, it suffers greatly from the wind. Therefore, the site for planting weigels must be protected from drafts.The plant is easy to propagate by seed. But it should be noted that Minor Black is a hybrid variety. Therefore, the varietal qualities of plants grown from seeds may differ from the parental variant.Blooming Weigela Minor Black is demanding on soil fertility. But, if the plant is overfed, or fertilizers are applied incorrectly, then flowering can not wait. In order not to waste time and effort on maintaining the looseness of the site for the weigela, you can mulch the near-trunk circle after watering with a thick layer. Mulch is prepared from a mixture of sawdust, compost and peat. The layer can be up to 10 cm. Weigela develops well and blooms luxuriantly, growing on loose soil. After watering, it is necessary to loosen the trunk circle to a depth of 10 cm each time.The second flowering in the season is provided by young shoots. And, despite the fact that this picture is not as bright as the first plant covered with delicate flowers in September, at least it looks exotic against the background of fading vegetation.

In early spring, it is imperative to shake off heavy wet snow from the weigela’s shelter. Its fragile branches break easily under the weight of the snow mass.
Experienced gardeners advise planting cuttings in separate containers. The bushes need to be grown to a permanent place for one and a half to two years. To make the future seedling sufficiently developed and lush, the top of the cutting after the formation of the roots is shortened by a third.

Weigela of the Honeysuckle family is named after the German botanist Weigel. This flowering shrub came to Europe from Southeast Asia, where more than a dozen species of this shrub grow. In Russia, weigela is found in the wild in the Far East. No more than 10 types of shrubs are cultivated in gardens and parks. Weigela Minor Black is one of the most beautiful members of the family.
Layers can also be used to breed shrubs in the garden. To obtain a seedling in the fall, the lowest branch from the mother bush is added dropwise, after removing all the foliage, except for the top one. A healthy seedling will be ready by spring. It is separated and transplanted into a growing tub.The hybrid dwarf weigela Minor Black is also suitable as a tub culture. But usually shrubs are grown in flowerpots only up to three years of age. Then the plant is transplanted to a suitable place in the garden.

To prepare the weigels for frost, they carry out the last fertilization of the season. You can use complex potassium preparations. Some gardeners bring in wood ash at the rate of 1 glass per 1 square meter when digging a site around the shrub.
The first feeding is carried out in early spring. Sometimes fertilizers are applied before the snow cover melts. But experts consider this method ineffective. Together with melt water, the fertilizer will be dispersed over the site. For Weigela, such feeding is not enough to wake up and feed.

If weigelu is struck by root cancer, then you will have to part with the bush. This disease spreads quickly and can affect any plants in the garden. In order not to risk the health of the pets, the diseased plant must be urgently dug up and burned.

Burpee Recommends: Avoid powdery mildew by providing good air circulation for the plants by good spacing and pruning. Contact your Cooperative Extension Service for fungicide recommendations.

Leafroller: Caterpillars or pupae are found on the inside a folded leaf tied with silk. These feed on leaves and fruit surfaces. They overwinter as pupae or eggs, depending on the species, and emerge in the spring. Burpee Recommends: Check with your local Cooperative Extension Service for insecticide recommendations.
Spider Mites: These tiny spider-like pests are about the size of a grain of pepper. They may be red, black, brown or yellow. They suck on the plant juices removing chlorophyll and injecting toxins which cause white dots on the foliage. There is often webbing visible on the plant. They cause the foliage to turn yellow and become dry and stippled. They multiply quickly and thrive in dry conditions. Burpee Recommends: Spider mites may be controlled with a forceful spray every other day. Try hot pepper wax or insecticidal soap. Check with your Cooperative Extension Service for miticide recommendations. Botrytis: This fungus causes a grey mold on flowers, leaves, stems and buds. It thrives in cool wet weather conditions. Burpee Recommends: Remove affected plant parts, avoid watering at night and getting water on the plant when watering. Make sure plants have good air circulation. Contact your Cooperative Extension Service for fungicide recommendations. Aphids: Greenish, red, black or peach colored sucking insects can spread disease as they feed on the undersides of leaves. They leave a sticky residue on foliage that attracts ants. Burpee Recommends: Introduce or attract natural predators into your garden such as lady beetles and wasps which feed on aphids. You can also wash them off with a strong spray, or use an insecticidal soap.Rust: A number of fungus diseases that causes rust colored spots on foliage and stalks. Burpee Recommends: For serious infections contact your Cooperative Extension Service for fungicide recommendations. Anthracnose: This is a fungus disease causes brown spots with purple edges on the leaves. The spots turn black in the center; leaves become yellow, dry and fall off. The fungus overwinters in diseased plant debris. Burpee Recommends: Avoid overhead watering which can spread the fungus spores. Keep a clean garden, remove and discard all diseased plant material. Use a mulch to prevent spores from splashing from the soil onto plants. Black Spot: This is a fungal disease that affects leaves. It usually occurs in hot, humid or rainy weather. Black circular spots appear on the upper and undersides of leaves. The outer margins of the circles are ragged. The spots can enlarge and merge. The leaves often fall off the plant leaving the plant defoliated. The damage is often worse on the lower leaves. Burpee Recommends: Remove all debris from under the plants. Avoid getting the leaves wet. A mulch under the plants will help prevent spores from splashing up.

What is the growth rate of weigela?
13–24″ per year Growth Rate This shrub grows at a medium rate, with height increases of 13–24″ per year.
N.C. Cooperative Extension prohibits discrimination and harassment on the basis of race, color, national origin, age, sex (including pregnancy), disability, religion, sexual orientation, gender identity, and veteran status.Weigela typically grows from 6 to 10 feet tall and 9 to 12 feet wide; however, cultivars tend to be smaller. When mature, older interior branches can be removed in late winter to improve the plant’s vigor and blooms the following year. This plant blooms on old wood, therefore, pruning is best done just after flowering as flowers appear on last season’s wood. If not pruned, branches will form a fountain-like outline which is highly ornamental while covered with blooms, but over time it can take on a weedier appearance. Prune if necessary to help maintain the plant’s size and shape.

Листья при распускании бордовые, затем становятся зелёными с бронзовым оттенком. Цветки имеют форму колокольчиков, обращённых вверх, насыщенно-розового цвета. Цветение обильное в VІ–VІІ.Кустарник дальневосточного происхождения, достигающий в условиях Московского региона высоты около 2 м. Крона раскидистая или полусферическая. Листья эллиптические, заострённые на верхушке, около 5–7 см длиной, сверху голые, снизу опушённые. Цветки в соцветиях по 4–5 штук, широко-колокольчатые, 2–3 см длиной, розовые, цветут в V–VІ. Предпочитает хорошо увлажнённые, плодородные, слабокислые и нейтральные почвы. Не выносит застоя воды. В условиях Подмосковья привозные растения недостаточно зимостойки, однако растение давно культивируется в ботанических садах по всей стране от Калининграда до Хабаровска, где за долгие годы культивирования появились вполне зимостойкие линии, потомство от которых оказывается более морозостойким, чем посадочный материал того же вида, но европейского происхождения. Сорта имеет смысл дополнительно укрывать на зиму лапником, но и в этом случае растения подмерзают. Однако растение быстро восстанавливает свою крону в течение сезона, превращаясь в компактный куст, который иногда успевает зацвести. Цветение это слабое и недостаточно декоративное, а вот выращивание таким способом декоративно-лиственных сортов и форм вполне актуально, листья на отрастающих порослевых побегах и ярче, и крупнее. Рекомендуется для одиночных и групповых посадок, декоративных композиций.
