Plant Patent #12,217. Cultivar: 'Elvera'. Finally, a dwarf Weigela with the dark foliage, bright blooms, and exciting color changes of the finest tall varieties. Midnight Wine is an ever-changing feast for lovers of purple and pink tones -- as well as birdwatchers, who will enjoy the hummingbirds' infatuation with this sun-loving plant. The pink blooms just sparkle in the early-summer sun, contrasting nicely with the dark foliage. 1 to 1-1/2 in. long, they arise very profusely, making this little shrub into a showpiece. Just 18 to 24 in. high and wide, this dwarf shrub is content in any sunny to lightly shaded spot, including planters and tubs. Simply provide it with well-drained soil and adequate water, and Midnight Wine works it's magic. This is a shrub you can place in a formal planting or a happily chaotic flower bed -- wherever it is, it will glow.

Asked by: pam
Hello, Pam. Yes, the 'Midnight Wine Weigela drops its leaves in autumn before winter dormancy sets in. Fresh, beautiful deep foliage returns in Spring.

2 gal. Midnight Wine Weigela Shrub is rated 4.2 out of 5 by 9.
Rated 4 out of 5 by from Love this plant These are so easy to care for & are beautiful most of the year. In the winter they look like a bunch of twigs thrown in a pile. I trim mine way back after they loose all their leaves & in the spring they come back better than the year before.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Excellent plant The plant could have been obtained from other sources. However, I decided to save a trip and try home Depot's online nursery. The shrub arrived quickly and in very good condition. After planting, the shrub quickly adapted and is vigorously growing. The appearance is exactly what I wanted for the spot.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Beautiful Shrub, adding attractive color for the butterfly, bee and human eye! A very hearty shrub! It's already grown a couple of inches since it was planted. Planted near a water feature, we hope the pink flowers that are expected to bloom, will attract butterflies, bees, and Humming Birds to our small wildlife habitat!

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Ordered twice. Some lived. Some withered and died. It seems to be hit and miss with these plants. We ordered three and were so impressed that we ordered three more. Two plants in the second set have already died. We probably will not order again. Thankfully, our local store was quick to offer a refund for the two dead plants.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Excellent purchase The plants came packaged well and had no damage. Once watered and did shake them out looked very good. Doing well now that they are planted.
