Hi everyone,I bought this at a boot fair, can someone tell me the name of this plant please?




Looks like a weigela (bush honeysuckle) to me. If it is, it's gorgeous.

Thanks guys and gals, I just need to find out how to look after it now! It was a bargain I thought Pimpernel, I paid £1.50 for it... :)

Hello franny, thats a very good price you paid, this weigelia does well in a sunny situation or semi shade, let it get established before doing any pruning which you can do after flowering it also reponds very well to severe renovation pruning.

Thanks Julien, will it be alright in a 12" pot?
