The variegated wiegelias tend to have both a decent shape (especially if regularly pruned) as well as outstanding high impact foliage. You can use this shrub as a standout foliage plant with long lasting interest and treat the pinky summer blossom as a additional treat. That is if you like variegation.

Cultivation tips: Weigelia flourishes in most well drained fertile, doing especially well on chalky soils. This variegated variety requires a spot in full or part sun but avoid really scorching locations as foliage can scorch. Prune after flowering, removing 1/4 to 1/3 of old wood each year. Occasional mulching will help maintain vigor.
