The new look purple leaved weigela! Spilled Wine has dark red, wavy leaves and a spreading habit. Its hot pink-magenta flowers are similar to those of Wine & Roses, but this is a smaller plant that is wider than it is tall. This is a wonderful plant for adding lots of color in mass plantings, or tucked into an existing border.
