Weigela Florida ‘Minor Black’

Categories: ,


Minor Black is both spreading and mounding, prepared to scramble across the soil or loll over rocks and other hilly elements in the garden. Never aggressive, it is a good neighbor to groundcovers and to small perennials, and makes a lovely foreground planting to shrubs and taller, rangier plants. The new spring foliage emerges nearly black, turning deep maroon to violet as the season progresses and the heat intensifies. By the heart of the summer, olive streaks may decorate the leaves, but the fundamental “black” cast of the foliage is never lost!
