Dark and Rich!

Minor Black Weigela (Weigela florida 'Verweig 3' PPAF) is about to take over your beds and borders with unmatched style! Beautifully rich and dark, this low-growing weigela has foliage that vividly contrasts your green and gold leaved plants and unites your purple and maroon leaved shrubs.

Minor Black keeps its rich color all summer long and even busts out in lovely rose-pink blooms that hummingbirds and butterflies can't resist. This is a perfect shrub for foundation plantings, the front of your borders and beds and anywhere that you want hot new texture and color.

Minor Black Weigela isn't aggressive but plays well with other groundcovers and perennials. It covers the feet of taller, lankier shrubs with great style. In the spring, the leaves emerge almost black and then turn deep maroon as the summer wears on and the heat turns up. By mid-summer, olive-green streaks may tattoo the leaves but the foundational "black" sheen is always present.

The tubular blooms are just the right size and shape for pollinators and they combine rosy and pinkish tones that maximize their showiness against the dark leaves. (This is the perfect shrub to locate under your hummingbird feeder!)

You'll want to order several if these beauties because they make a grand show repeated throughout your border.

This one is small in size but makes a huge impact! Order yours today!

  • Easy care
  • Non-fading dark leaves
  • Pollinators love it
