VERY FINE WINE® Weigela

Zone: 4, 5, 6, 7, 8 Exposure: Full Sun Height: 2-2.5' Width/Spread: 2-2.5'

Northern growers have long appreciated the hardiness of Fine Wine, but we’ve always wished it was better. This plant solves our dilemma; it maintains the superior hardiness but comes with darker foliage and better flowering.

Why grow Very Fine Wine in your garden:

– Fantastic cold hardiness, less prone to tip dieback.

– Darker foliage, full season interest.

– Heavy bloomer

Light: It gets the best foliage color and highest bloom count in full sun.

Soil: Adaptable to most soils, except those that stay wet.

Water: Average water needs.

Fertilizing: Nothing special required. If desired, you may apply a granular fertilizer formulated for woody plants in late winter/early spring when the soil is workable.

Pruning: Rejuvenation pruning every 3 to 5 years is recommended – this is the process of removing 1/3 of the thickest branches all the way to the ground. Maintains its habit naturally, no need to prune to shape.

Other: Makes a great cut flower or foliage filler for arrangements.
