The last entry on my best new shrubs for 2020 list is one that I can only grow as an annual here in South Carolina. Our summers are just too hot for it.
However, it looks so pretty I had to include it on the list for those of you who live in cooler areas.
Like the original ‘My Monet’ Weigela, Weigela ‘My Monet Purple Effect®‘ is a dwarf variety that is more shade tolerant than most Weigela and has variegated cream and green leaves.
Unlike the original, this variety withstands cold and heat better.
And, as the name suggests, it has purple tones on the leaves and in the flowers which will make a beautiful addition to any garden border.
