My Monet Purple Effect brings new colour, more flowers, and better hardiness, while keeping the charm of the original My Monet®. Its variegated cream and mint green foliage takes on purple (as opposed to pink) tones, and it is much better able to withstand the rigors of both cold and warmer climates. Though it is slightly larger, it can be used in much the same way: as a delightful companion to perennials, as a colorful edging, in a container, or anywhere you need a spot of clear, clean color.

Growing and Maintenance Tips

Weigela is an easy care shrub that is adaptable to a range of soil conditions. It should be pruned after flowering to shape the plant. It is fast growing and very trouble free. Variegation makes 'My Monet Purple Effect' Weigela a bit more shade tolerant than most Weigelas, and the warmer your location, the more shade it will require.
