The Midnight Wine Weigela is one of the few perennials to boast dark purple, almost black foliage in addition to a stunning display of light pink flowers in spring! This wholly unique shrub lavishly shows off the contrasting colors it produces, and even more powerfully catches the eye when planted among green-leaved plants. Midnight Wine creates a lovely color scheme that's rarely seen in green-dominated landscapes, subtly but effectively providing elegant depth. Small and compact growth combined with dark, richly colored foliage both make Midnight Wine a perfect companion to larger green plants such as Azaleas, Boxwoods, and Rhododendrons.
The Midnight Wine Weigela can grow up to one foot tall with a spread of about two feet. This beautiful specimen plant is widely considered a no-prune shrub since it is naturally compact with a nicely rounded and symmetrical form. Grows best in USDA Hardiness Zones five through nine, meaning that this shrub is cold hardy down to at least -10 degrees F!
Dark-purple, almost black foliage makes Midnight Wine an ideal accent in landscapes among larger green shrubs. This Weigela cultivar is an exceptionally beautiful and eye-catching specimen in full bloom when dark foliage contrasts with its light pink blosoms! Excellent for both single and row plantings, the Midnight Wine Weigela brings a spectrum of colors and elegance to a landscape.
