Proven Winners

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.

Here is a nice comparison of our entire Wine series of weigela.
