Why plant Spilled Wine® Weigela?
Put a bottle of your favorite Merlot next to this spirit, and it may just blend right into that deep purple foliage! Proven Winners® Color Choice® Spilled Wine® Weigela is adorned with color even when it's not in bloom! The dense plum leaves add to your garden color palette as bursts of fuchsia blooms trumpet open from spring to summer. The lavish flowers catch all the attention of the hummingbirds who stop in throughout the day for a quick sip from the buttery yellow centers. As the summer heat kicks up, the bold foliage gets darker and darker, making the flowers pop even brighter! Proven Winners® Color Choice® Spilled Wine® Weigela pointy leaves stand out in the fall with their burgundy color transformation.
Weigela is one of many popular American landscape plants that originally came from Japan. It was introduced to the West in 1860 and has been a reliable and colorful favorite since at least your great-grandparents’ time. These older forms often grow to be big and bulky, but a flurry of Weigela breeding in recent decades has produced a wealth of smaller versions, and people are falling in love with this classic plant all over again.
How to use Spilled Wine® Weigela in the landscape?
This deciduous shrub grows wider than it is tall, give it the perfect home in your garden borders, lined walkways, and in pots throughout your deck. If you have a summer party and someone spills the wine, no worries!
Hardiness Zone: 4-8
