Description

A beloved garden plant for several years now, My Monet® weigela combines perfectly pretty variegated foliage with rosy pink blooms. Its super dwarf habit makes it ideal for most any landscape use, especially since it tolerates more shade than most, thanks to its wide, neat, ivory leaf margins.

Growing Tips

Late to leaf out in spring. May require a bit of pruning to clean up winter damage - wait until new growth appears to do so. Keep cool and well-watered, as foliage browns if drought stressed.
