Yes ... Cultivated a lot in Kashmir.
Thank you, Sir.
I want to know the species. The one posted by you on efloraindia is W. hortensis and according to Dr. Bharati, my plant should be be W.
florida. W. florida
is accepted name on THE PLANT LIST and W.
hortensis
is  unresolved name.
We only have Weigela hortensis (with images) in efi posted by ... i from Kashmir. ..., plant appears close to the one posted by ... i except for slight variation in colour.
Weigels florida and W. hortensis are two distinct species (We should not pay much attention to Unresolved name listing in the Plant List.
W. florida: calyx divided up to middle, lobes lanceolate, leaves glabrous above, corolla suddenly contracted below middle
W. hortensis: calyx divided up to base with linear segments, leaves pubescent above, corolla suddenly contracted above middle.
You may check your specimens for these.
Thank you very much for detailed and easy to use key to the species of Weigela.
I think, I have two different types of plants in my collection, as it
appears after going through the key.
The ones which I have posted, appears Weigela florida. Attaching more photographs showing calyx. Attachments (2)

Species 2. It was with slightly darker shade. It appears W. hortensis as calyx lobes are linear and divided up to the base. Attachments (2)

Somehow to me both look like the same
