Gracefully arching shrub boasts densely clustered, 1" funnel-shaped pink blooms which are especially attractive to hummingbirds. Flowers from late spring into fall. The foliage is as distinctive as the pink flowers; its oval leaves are variegated—green, edged with creamy white. Especially well-suited for city conditions; its compact size (4-6' tall with a 5' spread) fits most urban landscapes. Weigela florida 'Variegata'
