Q.Midnight Wine Branches On My Monet Shrub

Zone South Lyon, MI 48178 | Anonymous added on June 13, 2021 | Answered

I have 7 My Monet Weigela shrubs which have done well in our South-facing landscape. A few of them have sprouted branches that look like those on a Midnight Wine Weigela. While doing some light pruning of dead branches, I removed them (which looks a bit unbalanced). My thought is the plant was grafted (?) or it’s reverting, or ?! Any advice on how to rectify the situation would be appreciated.

You did the right thing by removing the errant branches. It is the same principle as variegated stems reverting to green. The best thing to do is to remove them so they don't take over.
