    Uses Notes: 

    Good in shrub borders, groupings, masses, as a specimen, and great in containers (plant in ground in fall.) Wonderful with used with annuals such as Diamond Frost.

    Maintenance Notes: 

    Prefers well-drained soil, extremely adaptable to other soil conditions. It is best to prune immediately after flowering. Fertilize in early spring by applying slow release fertilizer specialized for trees and shrubs, follow the label for the recommended rate of application.

    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.

    • 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.

      Outstanding My favorite plant, I recommend to others all the time and explain the reasons why I like it so much.
    • I purchased 2 of these and they are doing well. They have barely increased in size over the past several years since planting them but they are beautiful and do rebloom. The compact size is nice. They are a great addition to my gardens. I live in zone 5a. I am a avid gardener (over 30 years) used to do professional landscaping and used to own a garden center and so I am particular about what I add to my gardens and these did not disappoint. I highly recommend them.
