Can you improve on a plant like Weigela 'Wine & Roses'®? Yes, you can as this dense, compact, round selection proves! There is nary a care in the world when you grow this little beauty that takes on a neat, Spirea-like mounded shape with dark burgundy foliage that is smaller than 'Wine & Roses'® and more tightly packed on its branches. Loads of deep pink flowers are sparkled generously throughout the foliage from late May through June making this plant even more irresistible. 'Fine Wine'™ will age beautifully in the landscape as a small space foundation plant, in a perennial border, or grouped to form a stunning low border in a bright, sunny area.
Prefers well-drained soil, extremely adaptable to other soil conditions. It is best to prune immediately after flowering. Fertilize in early spring by applying slow release fertilizer specialized for trees and shrubs, follow the label for the recommended rate of application.
