Love the beauty of this shurb. It is a great surprize everytime it blooms in the middle of spring here in Nebraska. I watch for the first sign of blooms and am always surprized to find them open when I least expect.

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.
