Eugenia prunes the Weigela japonica sinensis at the top of China Valley

Eugenia is one of the Asian Collection volunteers; with Betty, Terri, and Neal she comes in weekly to help with maintenance in the collection. Yesterday Betty, Terri, and Eugenia worked at the top of China Valley indiscriminately pruning, weeding, and generally grooming. We cut back some overly energetic vines, removed dead wood on deciduous shrubs, and weeded.

Weigela is not my favorite shrub, but this year we got our money's worth out of them. They have been flowering for two weeks and look like they will go on for another week. Not bad.
