Weigela My Monet® Sunset Description
Adored for its fun and colorful foliage, My Monet® ‘Sunset’ really is like artwork for the garden. Its variegated chartreuse foliage is great at providing contrast in the garden from spring through summer, but it’s in fall when the name ‘Sunset’ makes the most sense. Foliage takes on hues of brilliant orange, deep red, and vibrant yellow – all on its petite 1.5’ x 1.5’ frame!

Soil: Grows in any moist, but well-drained soil.
Light: Full sun (6+ hrs/day) to part sun (4-6 hrs/day)
Space: Min. 1.5' apart.
Fertilizing: If desired apply a granular rose or all purpose garden fertilizer in early spring.
Winterizing: A good 2-3" layer of mulch is recommended.
Maintenance: Blooms on old wood, so prune after bloom in late spring. Once plants are mature, you may want to remove a few of the oldest stems every 3-5 years to ensure it has lush, 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.
