I am thinking of putting in a varigated R of S to replace a varigated Wiegela that has not been doing well for 2 years.. I have scoped out 2 varieties - 'purpureus variegatis' and 'sugar tip.' Does anyone have these planted or have any preference? Is there another variety I should consider? Any info is appreciated. Thanks.

I don't have the variegated ROS but another variety, at our other house they spread like wildfire so I don't have it in the ground it will stay in a pot. Don't know if different varieties are more well behaved or not.
I know ROS like full sun where Weigela can grow in part sun also

The cultivars like 'Aphrodite' are less likely to produce seeds than the species plants...fewer seeds...fewer volunteers.

Are there any plants that discourage snakes? If not, any other ideas? Carol7 35 Aug 23, 2007 12:37 AM
