|Should I trim my weigela bush so it's not so tall? When is the best time to trim and will it still flower next year?|
|It is best to prune weigela shrubs in the late spring after they have finished blooming. Trimming weigela bushes right after they bloom will keep you from inadvertently pruning off next year?s flowers.
This is because weigela bloom on wood that it is a year old. The wood that grows this year will bloom next year. Pruning weigelas after blooming means that you will pruning before the blooming wood has a chance to grow.
