Easily grown in average, medium moisture, well-drained soils in full sun. Needs full sun for best flowering and foliage color, but will tolerate some light shade or sun dappled shade. Prune to shape if needed immediately after flowering.
‘Verweig’, commonly sold under the trade name of MY MONET, is a dwarf, rounded, deciduous weigela that typically grows to only 12-18” tall and as wide. It is noted for its small size, pink flowers and variegated (pink, cream and green) foliage. It was discovered as a sport (branch mutation) of Weigela florida ‘Tango’. Campanulate, soft pink flowers bloom in late spring, with scattered repeat bloom occurring throughout summer. Elliptic to ovate leaves (to 3” long) have green centers surrounded by creamy white with pink on the margins. The impressionistic leaves are purportedly reminiscent of the work of Monet, hence the trade name. U. S. Plant Patent PP16,824 was issued on July 18, 2006.
No serious insect or disease problems.
