Ornamental Features

Variegated Weigela is clothed in stunning clusters of rose trumpet-shaped flowers along the branches in late spring. It has attractive creamy white-variegated green foliage. The pointy leaves are highly ornamental but do not develop any appreciable fall color.

Landscape Attributes

Variegated Weigela is a multi-stemmed deciduous shrub with a more or less rounded form. Its average texture blends into the landscape, but can be balanced by one or two finer or coarser trees or shrubs for an effective composition.

Planting & Growing

Variegated Weigela will grow to be about 4 feet tall at maturity, with a spread of 5 feet. It tends to fill out right to the ground and therefore doesn't necessarily require facer plants in front. It grows at a medium rate, and under ideal conditions can be expected to live for approximately 30 years.

This shrub should only be grown in full sunlight. It prefers to grow in average to moist conditions, and shouldn't be allowed to dry out. It is not particular as to soil type or pH. It is highly tolerant of urban pollution and will even thrive in inner city environments. This is a selected variety of a species not originally from North America.
