Small shrub with surprising contrasts: white flowers on dark foliage.Variété Star

Description

This new variety, resulting from crossbreeding carried out by INRA in Angers, is valued for its compact and dwarf form and for the contrast between its dark foliage and white flowers. BLACK AND WHITE ® is the first Weigela variety with these remarkable characteristics.
Of medium growth with very short internodes, this shrub stays within small dimensions.
The deciduous dark green leaves gradually develop a pretty purple colouring through the seasons.
In May - June, the ends of the branches are covered in bouquets of pure white trumpet- shaped flowers with a very attractive tapered purple-red base, a delicate reminder of the colour of the young leaves.
BLACK AND WHITE ® should be planted in pots or in small borders, together with perennials and low shrubs. It prefers a sunny position, but tolerates light shade.

Care

Only light pruning after the flowering season is necessary.
