Weigela hortensis / Taniutsugi タニウツギ

 
Weigela hortensis is a small- to a tree with gray-brown barks found in sunny locations in mountainous regions, branching well from lower parts, becoming bushy, and growing to approximately 5m in height. Leaves are of opposite phyllotaxis, blades are 4-10cm long, 2-6cm wide, in an oval-oblong shape, with sharp tips, bases circular to broadly cuneate, and delicate serrations on margins, and with petioles of 3-10mm in length. Branch tips or axils on the upper parts give 2-3 pink-red to red flowers; corollas measure 2.5-3.5cm long, funnel-shaped, and the ends are cleft in five. Ovaries, 5-10mm long, positioned beneath calyxes, are slender and cylindrical; thus, they look like peduncles. Bloom time: May-June.
