MY MONET® ‘Sunset’ Weigela

Zone: 5, 6, 7 Exposure: Full Sun, Part Sun Height: 1-1.5' Width/Spread: 1-1.5'

A very attractive dwarf weigela with variegated gold foliage that turns red in fall, it can be used in the landscape as you would a coleus but without the need to replant each year. Grown primarily for its foliage, it will occasionally produce rosy pink flowers in spring. Add it to the front of beds and borders for multi-season color.


Light: It gets the best foliage color and highest bloom count in full sun.

Soil: Adaptable to most soils, except those that stay wet.

Water: Average water needs.

Fertilizing: Nothing special required. If desired, you may apply a granular fertilizer formulated for woody plants in late winter/early spring when the soil is workable.

Pruning: Rejuvenation pruning every 3 to 5 years is recommended – this is the process of removing 1/3 of the thickest branches all the way to the ground. Maintains its habit naturally, no need to prune to shape.

Other: Makes a great cut flower or foliage filler for arrangements.
