When I first ran across this weigela on the net .. I didn't take to it at all .. I thought it was way too BUSY with the variegation and hot pink flowers .. plus the pink tinged foliage as new growth appeared. Funny how attitude changes when you have a bit of time and exposure to a plant you thought you didn't like .. it turns into "why did I think THAT" ...
It also starts out with "ONE" plant .. then you become a fan of it and get another .. then one heck of a sale thing happens at the garden center you haunt and BANG ! A third one ..
Now I haven't seen them in flower .. since all three plants were only in foliage stage when I brought them home and tucked them into the garden beds ..
They are made for small gardens like mine .. that was a major drawing factor for me .. plus the variegation was something I thought was too busy but now realize it is a drawing card to LOOKING at the plant because it waved its little leaves at me saying "hey .. don't I look cool ?" .. I'm hoping for some flowers this Spring to give me that total affect ..
I would love to hear from any other gardeners that have this and have an opinion about it !
