Plant Information

My Monet is well-named. The leaves here are small, and begin pinkish, but then evolve to green with cream colored edges. Meanwhile, the blooms are a beautiful pink--a Monet-style garden on one neat plant! Why Weigelas are some of the most popular shrubs in the US: Not only hummingbirds and butterflies love these shrubs; gardeners do too. And there are good reasons. In addition to its spectacular bloom in late spring and early summer and its handsome foliage all season long, plant expert Tim Wood says it best, Adaptable to many soil types, its hardy to USDA zone 4 and has no serious pest problems. Its easy to propagate, easy to grow and presents itself well in a container. In a word, its reliable! The only requirement of this plant is that it requires full sun to produce copious flowers. The problem with Weigela is deciding which cultivar to grow, with over 80 to choose from! During its flowering season, its a bloom machine!

Comments about American Meadows Weigela My Monet:

Latest update, 4 yrs. later:
Transplanted in fall to edge of border of bed next to lawn. Leafed out in spring and growing well receiving full sun exposure --sun up to sundown. Does not mind hot dry heat (90-100 degrees) as long as it is watered occasionally and gets over-spray from lawn sprinklers.
Reduced watering to barely subsistence levels due to CA drought. Only 1 of 3 survived and lawn half died. Conclusion, slightly drought tolerant once established but will not flower or flourish. Does best with regular watering but can withstand drying out between times.

I ordered three of these. They were small upon arrival. I planted in a spot on the east side of my house with full morning sun and afternoon shade. None survived.

Growing well once established


from San Ramon, CA

Comments about American Meadows Weigela My Monet:

Just wanted to update. It's been a year now and the plants I put in gallon containers as little sprigs have now filled out the pots. I've had them in partial shade by some sprinkler so they'd get the overspray and they have been easy keepers and growing steadily. I recently moved them to full sun and plan to transplant them in ground--they're just beginning to break dormancy and show a bit of leaf. Hopefully with full sun I will see more bloom though the foilage is pretty on its own.

Comments about American Meadows Weigela My Monet:

If I wasn't so enchanted by the beautiful variegated foliage and promise of pink blooms, I probably wouldn't bother with this hard to find weigela. When I opened the box I was very disappointed with the size. It was this small twiggy fragile looking sprig about 5"x4" with some sparse tiny leaves.One of the two I received was very lopsided and laid over so that it appeared to be a trailing plant or "subulata". Afraid they would die if planted directly in the ground, I put them in 1 gal. pots with potting mix in partial shade & later full sun. Over a year later they are just starting to fill out the pots and have yet to bloom.

Q & A

Plant With These:

USDA Hardiness Planting Zones

To determine if a plant is sufficiently cold hardy, the USDA created numbered zones indicating winter low temperatures; the lower the zone number the colder the winter.

  • If the coldest winter temperature expected in your area is -15°F (zone 5) then any plants rated zones 3-5 will survive the winter temperatures in your area.
  • If you live in very warm winter areas (zones 9-11) plants with zones 3-4 ratings are not recommended. The lack of freezing winter temperatures do not provide a time for winter dormancy (rest).
