Description

Spilled Wine® weigela has dark red, wavy leaves and a spreading habit. Its hot pink-magenta flowers are similar to those of Wine & Roses® weigela, but this is a smaller plant that is wider than it is tall. It greatly expands the versatility of that best selling weigela. Spilled Wine® weigela was the 2018 Landscape Shrub of the Year.
