Weigela My Monet® Description
The original and still the champion! My Monet® weigela from Proven Winners has been around for a long time, but nothing can beat it for pure plant prettiness. Foliage is a very neatly variegated mint green and white, with flushes of pink during cool weather in spring and fall. In late spring, dozens of trumpet-shaped pink blooms pepper the plant. It’s a sight to behold, in bloom or not.
My Monet weigela is the perfect shrub to add to your perennial garden for foliage and flower color. It also makes an excellent ground cover and because of its ability to tolerate shade, brings color and light to darker areas.

Soil: Grow in any moist but well-drained soil. Leaf edges will turn brown if exposed to very dry or very hot conditions.
Light: Full sun (6+ hrs/day) to part shade
Space: Min. 2' apart.
Fertilizing: Apply a granular rose or garden fertilizer in early spring if desired. Never fertilize weigela past mid-summer, as this increases likelihood of winter damage to any new growth the plant puts on as a result.
Winterizing: A good 2-3" layer of mulch is recommended.
Maintenance: Weigela bloom on old wood so should only be pruned after blooming. Once plants are mature (after at least 5 years in the ground), you may want to remove a few of the oldest stems each year to keep it producing vigorous young growth. Note: weigela are one of the last shrubs to leaf out in spring, so don't panic if you aren't seeing signs of life even if everything else in your yard has started to grow.
