pruning Weigela

When is the proper time to do this? Now or right after it finishes blooming/
Submitted by BHGPhotoContest

Weigela blooms in spring and should be pruned right after bloom time. If you cut it now you will forfeit the flowers that are developing. As a rule of thumb, shrubs should be pruned right after flowering or in the case of late bloomers, in early spring.
