MY MONET® Weigela

Zone: 4, 5, 6 Exposure: Full Sun Height: 1-1.5' Width/Spread: 1.5-2'

This dwarf, variegated weigela can be used as an edging plant, mixed in the perennial border, or grown in a container. The foliage is colorful all season long, and will often develop pink tones in later summer and autumn. It is a good low maintenance choice for adding season-long color to landscapes.

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.
