New Dwarf, Variegated Weigela

by Charlie Nardozzi


Weigela is a widely grown, adaptable, spring-flowering shrub. Its beautiful tube-shaped flowers come in a range of colors from white to red. However, after blooming, the shrub’s green foliage is nondescript for the rest of the summer.

Now a new variety with variegated leaves offers pizzazz all summer. The new spring foliage of 'My Monet' is bright pink and blends well with the rosy pink flowers. The leaves mature to green edged in white. ‘My Monet’ grows only 12 to 18 inches tall, so it makes a great container plant, as well as a colorful addition to the perennial border. It's hardy in USDA zones 4 to 8.
