Description

Colorful Foliage, Compact Habit, & Deer Resistant

Never "greens out" in summer heat

A Proven Winners® ColorChoice® Flowering Shrubs variety, Weigela Spilled Wine® is a smart little shrub that looks like an exotic special, but actually it's easy to grow, very dependable, and super long-blooming. The handsome deep purple foliage serves as a delightful backdrop for its beautiful pink-magenta flowers, which are irresistible to butterflies and hummingbirds.

Spilled Wine keeps its purple leaves from spring through fall, not "going green" in summer heat like some others do. In fact, strong sunlight intensifies the dark purple hues, so that by mid-August the foliage nearly looks black. Wow!

Just 2 to 3 feet high and wide, Spilled Wine® greets spring with fresh, glossy violet leaves and bright pink-magenta blooms by the dozen. The flowers are heaviest in late spring but continue intermittently all summer and fall.

Spilled Wine has a slightly spreading habit, growing wider than tall, making it a great choice for mass plantings, especially nice for foundations, along pathways, or the front of the border. And it's petite enough to show off in a container all by itself, too. Just give it plenty of sunshine and well-draining soil, pamper it the first season so that it finds its feet, and let it go!

Spilled Wine® is compact, colorful in leaf as well as in flower, and very easy to grow. Find a special place for it in your landscape this season and enjoy its ever-increasing beauty for years to come.
