Two summers ago, I purchased a bedraggled little shrub that I came across in the 1/2 price section of a local gardening store. It was root-bound and the few leaves still on it were crinkled, but I thought it was worth at least trying. What a great find! Today that Fine Wine® Weigela is a prized jewel in my garden. The leaves are more refined than common weigelas - smaller & dark green with a tinge of purple around the edges. The foliage alone is attractive, but when the gently arching branches are covered with stunning pink flowers (mine blooms from April through August), the shrub is truly stunning. As previously mentioned, my plant wasn't in great health when I bought it, but the fact that it has thrived at my house tells me it is strong stock. It's easy to grow and doesn't appear to be bothered by pests or disease. This plant is a REAL winner.
