My Monet Purple Effect™ brings new color, more flowers, and better adaptability, while sharing all the charm and beauty of the original My Monet® weigela. 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.Foliage InterestResists:Deer

Variegation makes My Monet Purple Effect weigela a bit more shade tolerant than most, and the warmer your climate, the more shade it will require.My Monet Purple Effect® Weigela florida 'Verweig8' USPPAF, Can PBRAF
