Product Information

As pretty as one of Monet's masterpieces, this delightfully small and compact flowering shrub really has the most beautiful 3-colour foliage. Perfect for mixed borders and containers.

Reaching around 1m in height and width, Weigela 'Monet' is a lovely spring-flowering shrub, with big, lipstick-pink tubular flowers in spring.

However, the real highlight is its foliage which forms a neat mound of pink-blushed leaves. Each green leaf is edged with a variable cream variegation, with varying tints of rose-pink flushing throughout.

Variegation will change depending on light exposure - whiter variegation develops in shade and deepest pink in full sun - nevertheless a picture wherever it is grown!

Due to its compact nature, it's perfect in pots as a feature plant or in the front of smaller gardens. Easy to grow too, so makes the perfect plant for new gardeners or those who prefer to spend less time maintaining and more time enjoying.

Supplied as an established plant in a 3L pot, ready for planting out. and reaching 60-100cm high and wide. Flowers mainly in May but can flush again in summer.

Care Information

Planting Advice for your Weigela florida 'Monet':

  • Grow Weigela in a sunny or semi shaded position, in any well drained soil.
  • Shrub roots generally tend to spread out rather than down, so dig a planting hole 3 x wider than the roots of the shrub you're planting and mix some well-rotted compost or manure with the soil from the hole and use this to re-fill one the shrub is in place.
  • We've found that a square hole is better than a round one as the new roots, once they reach the edges tend to grow in a circle round the circumference of the hole whereas when they reach the corners of a square hole, they find it easier to grow through.
  • Before planting soak container-grown shrubs thoroughly and allow to drain.
  • Remove the plant from its pot and tease out a few of the roots.
  • Add Mycorrhizal fungi to the roots when planting to help plants establish quicker.
    Place your shrub in the hole at the same level at the pot.
  • Refill the hole with the earth removed (backfilling).
  • Firm in the soil with your heel, avoiding the root ball, then water well.
  • Mulch around the base of the plant with a collar, compost, gravel, bark etc.

If you’re planting into pots, place some old rocks, stones or gravel in the bottom of the pot for drainage and ballast.
Use the best compost you can buy and some sand or grit for drainage.

Aftercare advice for Weigela 'Monet:

  • Keep plants well-watered while they establish, especially if planted up in a pot.
  • Weigela should be watered thoroughly during dry periods ensuring the soil is kept moist throughout active growth.
  • Apply a layer of mulch to retain moisture levels while providing additional nutrients.
  • Apply a slow release fertiliser in spring or after pruning.

 

Pruning advice for your weigela:

  • Pruning is not essential apart from removing any branches that are dead or damaged, and should be odne after flowering.
  • Plants do respond well to hard pruning which will generate new shoots.
  • After pruning, apply a generous 5-7cm (2-3in) layer of mulch such as well-rotted garden compost or manure around the base of the plant.
