New energy for an old favorite! My Monet Purple Effect™(Weigela florida) from Proven Winners® brings new colour, more flowers, and better adaptability, while sharing all the charm and beauty of the original My Monet® weigela.
Expect a late spring bloom of beautiful pink flowers that match beautifully with a variegated cream and mint green foliage, which takes on purple (as opposed to pink) tones. This cultivar 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 colour.
