Dark Foliage + Bright Weigela Blooms
Why Wine and Roses Weigela Shrubs?
For starters, it's the only Weigela variety with dark glossy foliage, similar to deep red wine, plus bright pink, rose-like blooms. Basically, it delivers contrast as you've never seen...and since it's one of the few reblooming Weigelas on the market, it's got the best of both worlds.
It's no wonder why landscapers love to use this Weigela in high-end neighborhoods. The Wine and Roses Weigela's leaves are a dark, rich burgundy color, ideal for high traffic areas like sidewalks, driveways, and patios.
Beginning in late spring, the Wine and Roses Weigela offers fluorescent dark pink blooms in a show that doesn't stop. In fact, you get vivid color the rest of the summer! And since it grows in a neat, compact silhouette, it's perfect for low-growing groups, corners of your home, and beyond. When it comes to the Wine and Roses, you're not limited in planting.
Plus, it's virtually carefree. Though it prefers well-drained soil, this shrub is highly adaptable to almost any soil type and thrives through cold, heat and drought.

Planting & Care
2. Watering: Water your Wine and Roses regularly during the first growing season, or about once per week. You may need to water more often during times of extreme heat. But if you’re not sure when to water your Weigela, however, simply check the soil about 2 to 3 inches down – if the soil is dry here, it’s time to water.
3. Pruning: Pruning is not necessary for your Wine and Roses Weigela – simply space your plantings to allow your Weigela to grow naturally. If you want a more formal appearance, prune annually after the second flowering period at the end of summer.
4. Fertilizer: Fertilize your Wine and Roses with a slow-release solution before new growth begins in the spring.
