Weigela Spilled Wine® Description
Season spanning dark foliage. Compact habit. Small space wonder!
Weigela is an undemanding deciduous shrub that is easy to grow. Recent breeding has brought us colorful new selections and noted improvements from older varieties including:
- Prolific flowering- numerous and showy 1 1/2" funnel shaped blooms
- New and interesting flower colors
- Extended flowering period
- More compact habit
- Wonderful foliage color
Spilled Wine® forms clusters of 1 1/2" hot pink buds that open to pink funnel-shaped blooms in late spring. Season spanning deep purple foliage makes these a go-to shrub for an all season perennial garden. Growing 36" wide it fills in nicely between perennials and its not-too tall 24" means you can tuck it toward the front of the border for enjoyment.
A multi-stemmed shrub is ideal for border, foundations and containers, even groundcovers. Dark purple foliage throughout the growing season provides an excellent foreground to perennials and other shrubs. If you wish to retain a tidy form, pruning can be done immediately after flowering.
