How to Use My Monet® Weigela in the Landscape
The more, the merrier with this special variety. Although a single specimen will turn heads, we think a massed planting of this small shrub is most effective.
Run a low, colorful hedge along the edge of your garden beds. Plant them 12 inches apart, measuring from the center of one to the center of the next. They'll fill in to create a chic cover that brings visual interest all growing season long.
My Monet is perfect for planting in front of taller foundation shrubs. Use it to hide the "leggy" bare stems of any perennial or shrub in your mixed borders.
My Monet is very adaptable to container planting. Try a pair flanking either side of your front door to greet your guests in style. Be sure to use them as a "Thriller" in containers on your deck, balcony, patio or sun porch.
Create a special garden bed on the south side of mature evergreen trees, and enliven the look with a mass planting. You'll gain a special garden feature for very little work.
Plant them in a zigzagging double row in a wide bed running along your front walk. How easy to gain curb appeal, butterfly nectar resource and season-long color!
Widen the bed for a pretty mass planting. Pop a long row of Ninebark shrubs behind them to become a dark contrasting foliage partner. Presto, you'll look like you paid a garden designer "Big Bucks"!
Be sure to mulch between the plants. Keep new mass planting weeded until the Weigela grow together and touch. Enjoy!
#ProPlantTips for Care
My Monet will perform best in full sun. However, in the warmer Zones, it appreciates partial shade in the afternoon. Ensure they have at least four hours of direct sunlight a day, or you'll see reduced flowering.
It prefers well-drained soil types. If you need to improve drainage, add additional soil in a heaped mound and plant in it. Add a pretty border, and it becomes a raised bed.
Provide an even amount of medium moisture on a regular basis. Wood chip mulch should be added in a three-inch layer to cover the root system, and keep it nice and moist.
There is no need to prune these short dwarf shrubs. However, you will want to reapply mulch every other year or so. Please take care to ensure the mulch doesn't touch the stems directly, but is pulled back at least 3 inches.
As the years go by, you'll grow to count on your My Monet Weigela for bright, bold color, and an alluring image of style. Our growers love these special plants, too. We'll take great pride in preparing them for you and shipping directly to your doorstep. Order today!
