Weigelia 'Kosteriana Variegata'

From £9.99

Weigela ‘Kosteriana Variegata’ is a pretty, variegated Weigela with mid-green ovate leaves featuring a creamy-yellow margin. In late spring and early summer, the plant becomes festooned with attractive trumpet-shaped pink flowers all along its stems, so much so that the foliage is barely visible. The delightful display lasts for a couple of months before the flowers fade, leaving the ornamental variegated foliage to enjoy. The leaves then turn a buttery-gold in autumn before falling.

Weigela ‘Kosteriana Variegata’ is an excellent choice for informal planting at the back of a border, to add colour and to contrast with other foliage shrubs. Its informal style also lends itself well to a woodland or cottage garden. The prolific blooms attract bees, butterflies and other pollinating insects to the garden and will add a burst of colour in the early summer months to brighten even the dullest of spaces and the pretty variegated foliage remains eye-catching when not in flower.

This compact, rounded, easy-to-grow deciduous shrub is highly adaptable, growing in most locations and soils, as long as moist and well-drained. Weigela ‘Kosteriana Variegata’ enjoys a sunny or partially shaded positions and is considered very low maintenance so perfect for the less experienced gardener. It reaches a maximum height and spread of 2m so is suitable for a wide range of gardens.

1. Select Root Type

Bare Root 

Bare roots are young plants that are only planted when they are dormant, from November to March (weather dependant). We lift bare root plants and despatch them during the planting season but they can be pre-ordered in summer to guarantee your stock. As they are cheaper to grow, they are one of our most affordable hedge planting options and the cheapest way to plant a hedge.

Root Ball 

Root ball plants are also seasonal stock as they can only be lifted when they are dormant, from November to March (weather dependant). These plants are scooped out of the ground like an ice-cream using machinery to keep their root system intact and wrapped in bio-degradable, hessian sacks.  They are mature plants that provide dense coverage very early on, ideal for when you need a thick hedge quickly. Root ball hedging plants give an instant effect and are a cheaper alternative to instant trough grown hedging. 

Pot Grown 

Pot grown plants can be planted year round and they are our mose convenient option of hedging plants. They come in a wide range of sizes, from 10cm to 2.5m so they're suitable for the majority of planting requirements. From small 2L shrubs to large 15L extra tall hedging, there will be a pot grown plant for any garden type. 

Instant Hedging 

Our Instant Hedging is grown in troughs or bags that measure 50cm-1 metre in length and carefully clipped during the growing season to create a dramatic, instant hedge effect. If you are looking for a quick fix or an instant impact, Instant Trough Grown hedging is the solution for you.
