Spilled Wine® Weigela Wine & Roses® weigela has been a garden classic since we introduced it over 10 years ago. Have you tried its little sister, Spilled Wine®? Both have that luscious dark purple foliage that contrasts so beautifully with the pink flowers and are easy to grow, deer resistant shrubs that bloom in late spring. But Spilled Wine® is just 2-3 feet tall, making it ideally suited to perennial beds, the edge of foundation plantings, or any landscape need.

*Boxwood 'Dee Runk' is reportedly the nicest of the columnar boxwoods tolerating shade and clay soils. Total height of 8-10 ft tall can be sheared shorter. Max width about two feet. Advantage over other upright boxwoods is dense growth that won't flop open. Will fit nicely next to the porch stairs and in the corner by the garage.
