How Wine Lovers Paint Their Garden
Rich, velvety foliage forms a sumptuous textural backdrop for a bright floral bouquet of magenta pink blossoms that sing every spring. An updated, more petite look for weigela, it’s the perfect choice for foundation plantings, edging landscape beds and planting en masse. Full-bodied looks and an easy constitution—that’s Spilled Wine® weigela.
neat & petite
Put down those pruners! You won’t need them with Spilled Wine® weigela since it grows just 2-3’ tall. It’s just the right height for planting under windowsills or lining the edges of low maintenance landscape beds. If you love Wine & Roses® weigela but it’s just too tall, try this petite lookalike.

not-so complex care
Like a complex wine, Spilled Wine weigela embodies a certain richness and intensity that may look complicated, but there’s really nothing to it. It even adapts to most soil types, including clay. Giving it 6+ hours of sunlight, average water (about an inch per week), and a bit of slow release tree and shrub fertilizer in early spring will do the trick. Not so tricky after all, is it?
