Weigela floribunda / Yabuutsugi ヤブウツギ

 
Weigela floribunda, a deciduous small- to a tree, grows in sunny thickets. Leaves are opposite phyllotaxis; blades measure 5-12cm long, 3-6cm wide, oblong to long-oblong, with tips abruptly becoming strong, broad-cuneate-shaped bases, and fine serrations on margins. Deep to dark red, flowers set themselves 2 or 3 on branch tips or axils; corollas are funnel-shaped, 2.5-4cm long, and the upper parts are cleft in five. Floral tubes' upper halves somewhat abruptly expand in a bell shape. Ovaries, 1-1.3cm long, cylindrical, are seemingly peduncles, as those position beneath calixes, besides slender and cylindrical. Bloom time: May-June.
