Weigela is a small deciduous shrub and can grow up to five metres tall. While this beauty is native to Asia, it has been successfully cultivated in greenhouses across Europe and the Americas.
In the spring and summer they bloom delicate five-lobbed pink, red or white flowers. Toward the end of summer they shed their flowers and produce small red berries in their place, which will then drop and release their seeds.
Its leaves reach lengths of five to fifteen centimetres long, and have a serrated edge, making it a crafty flesh-eating shrub, by allowing it to slice segments of meat off its victims. This plant does devour its whole victim, with the exception of insects. It has a particularly devout appetite for garden gnomes, and while they are not the greatest pest controllers, they do discourage garden gnomes from infesting their space.
