New color and foliage interest grace this newer variety of the hardy weigela family of shrubs. My Monet Purple Effect Weigela adds a pretty deep pink flower to variegated leaves of white, green and purple. The short shrub can add unique color and interest to any container, garden border or garden bed. It's a versatile plant for most any area of your landscape, tolerating more shade than most weigelas.

My Monet Purple Effect Weigela produces late spring flowers on stems with variegated foliage. The plant holds its own as a pretty border or container plant. The weigela forms into a mounded shape of about 18 to 30 inches tall and wide. With its dazzling foliage and short height, this small weigela is a stunning groundcover or low border for a sidewalk or flower bed. My Monet is deer resistant, too.

My Monet Purple Effect Weigela Care

My Monet grows well in zones 4 through 6. If you live at the hot end of these zones, give your My Monet Purple Effect Weigela a little extra shade. It does best with about 4 to 6 hours of sun per day. My Monet has average water requirements, but can use a little extra water in its first year of growth. The tidy shrub seldom needs pruning, but if you want to shape it, do so after the flowers are done blooming.

My Monet Purple Effect Weigela Spacing

For a pretty, low border all season long, plant several My Monet Purple Effect Weigela shrubs together. Space the plants 1.5 to 2.5 feet apart.

    Love My Monet Purple Effect...

    Posted by SVITLANA BATTERMAN on Jun 12th 2020

    The plant arrived well packed in good shape and without damage. For the month, it has already grown by 1 inch. The leaves began to develop the "famous" maroon hue. I planted this in the ground in a sunny location. I fertilized a little with "osmos" since it is more tender to the roots and I have had good experience with this fertilizer in the past. Next year I will use a special fertilizer for flowering shrubs. So far so good. I bought last year My Money Sunset Weigela (locally) and this year it is already 10 inches wide and has started to bloom. So I hope that next year I will see the same progress with My Money Purple Effect Weigela. By the way, I love all kinds of Weigela. I have several of them on our property. They are very presentable and not picky. This was my first purchase from this site and I am satisfied.
