I was made an offer to receive 30 fat trunked wegilia (free) for some shohin material. Has anyone heard of this plant before as I am unfamiliar with it?

hmm, googled it, didn't find much.

But it's hard to pass up "fat" and "free" in the same offer. If they are crap, you can always build a bonfire and roast marshmellows.

Me to Bob. That prompted my inquiry. It is pretty chilly here, a bonfire might be useful.

Rick, the statement "Try Weigila" gives me hope...care to elaborate? Free can be good, or a waste of time an effort. Will post pics after I pick them up.

Here's a description of Wiegela

The Variegated Wiegela, Weigela florida 'Variegata', has a compact habit, growing 4-6' high and wide. It has grey leaves with yellow/cream fringes, and dark pink flowers. This deciduous shrub is grown for its showy bell-shaped flowers and spreading, arching growth habit.Dark pink flowers with pale pink-white interiors, to 1 1/4 inches long are produced in corymbs on short lateral twigs on previous years growth in late spring to early summer. Flowers are attractive to hummingbirds. Very nice in a mixed shrub border.
