Wigelia is a member of the Caprifoliaceae (honeysuckle) family that may be found in North China, Korea, and Japan. It's a deciduous shrub with thick, rounded branches that tend to arch toward the ground as it matures. Showy rose coloured tubular blooms cover the shrub for about two weeks after the leaves appear in mid- to late spring, and have a repeat performance, albeit sparser, in mid- to late summer. Plant this shrub in full sun to light shade, however full sun will produce the greatest blooming.
