090710 shrub for ID from Kashmir
One of the few plants whose name I have forgotten over the years. Kindly help me with identification.
Cultivated shrub, up to 2 m tall
Leaves simple, opposite, up to cm long, serrulate, elliptic-lanceolate
Flowers in terminal paniculate clusters, pinkish, darker on the outside, up to 6 cm long.
It can be a bad guess but I think this plant is Weigela florida (Bunge) DC. I have seen it only once but look very close to this plant.
Yes …, you are really a genius, you reminded me the genus. It is of course Weigela hortensis: deeeply cut calyx with linear lobes, pubescent leaves, corolla tube abruptly expanded above. The name had just slipped off my mind.
That’s great !!!! I was not good enough to give the complete epithet at least I was partially right

Leycesteria sp… ??
Is there any Leycesteria sp with complete red flower ?
Weigela florida A.DC. !
I find it more close to Weigela hortensis as per keys and details herein.
I did not find its distribution in China!
