Rich pink spring flowers often rebloom through summer. Dark purple foliage all season. Good for mixed borders or foundation plantings. Deer resistant. Season-long color.

The next generation of Wine & Roses® weigela has the same dark burgundy foliage but a compact, mounded habit similar to that of spirea or boxwood. Fine Wine® weigela is a refined plant with smaller leaves than Wine & Roses but similarly abundant pink spring flowers and excellent texture. It's a great plant for the front of the border, the perennial bed, or used as a low foundation plant.
