Weigelas have been favorites of many gardeners over the years. My Monet is a new addition, low mounding, that only grows 12-18'' tall. It is a deciduous shrub, meaning it drops its leaves in winter. These leaves are worth waiting for. My Monet's foliage is a watercolor-painting combination of cream, green, and white. Its charm shows off best in sunny northern gardens. My Monet weigela is a bit late to leaf out in the spring, so be patient. Use it alone or in combination in a container or as an edging row in front of the perennial border. This is a great little shrub for Northern gardens and is rated for USDA Zones 4-6.

Trees don't have two eyes like we do, yet they can see. They know how much light is hitting their leaves, and they know the quality of that light, too. They know if it's summer or winter by the length of the day, and they know if it's noon or afternoon by the wavelength of the light.
