Here’s an awesome shrub you probably already know and use, but it’s worth being reminded about – Weigela florida ‘Variegata’. The variegated foliage is the main attraction and the light pink, spring flowers are the added bonus. It’s a rounded shrub that doesn’t require a lot of pruning. Growing 3′ x 3′ it fits any landscape from perennial and shrub borders to foundation plantings and entryways.

Plant in full sun in moist, well-drained soil. Sited in front of evergreens will make that variegation pop. As the weather turns cooler the leaves will have a splash of pink in the margins.
