Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by SimpleKitchen Very popular plant but still no blooms on mine.
As far as I can tell from my research, the Wine and Roses Weigela is the same whether it is call "re-blooming" or not, and whether it is called a "shrub" or not. If it's "Wine and Roses," then that means that it's a re-blooming shrub. It gets great reviews as a plant that doesn't look good in winter but makes up for that in summer.
The plant came with some dead leaves as shown in the photo. It had no blooms or buds. I pruned those off and new growth started within the week, but still no buds. At this point, the foliage does not seem noticeably dark purple. The new growth is light green and the older growth is dark green.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by SteveVA First one died but I was sent a second, healthy one
I received one of these for a dead spot between some compact lilac shrubs. The shrub arrived in late July (heat wave week). It was pretty stressed but I left it on the patio in morning sun and gave it water. Before being boxed it looked like it was pruned but not that well. It appeared someone took head trimmers and sliced off the top, cutting leaves and all (see picture). This appeared to add to the plant's stress.
I waited until an overcast day and planted it (late July). I soaked the hole and the plant afterwards. It budded out new leaves and went through some transplant shock and eventually died. I contacted Proven Winners on a Friday in September and by the next Wednesday I had a replacement plant in excellent shape. I replanted and it is doing great. Great customer service.
I assume it will take a few years to get big but am excited to see how it will look next spring. I have it in a full sun (12+ hours) location.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Tom79 Cute little plant
In its 4.5 in. Quart's size, this weigela is a rather small plant. However, it has the potential to become much larger, up to 10 feet by 10 feet, which is impressive. The delivered plant was quite healthy. No flowers yet, not sure if the season is over yet. The plant seems to be pretty happy in its new habitat. As usual with Proven Winners' products, this plant was well packed and in good condition. I do recommend this product.

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by MrCoolDU4 Expensive
I paid $15 a piece for these online thru HD although they were obviously sent directly from Proven Winners. I guess I am paying for what they are going to look like and not how they looked when they arrived as I doubt I'd have paid $15 for what I received. Having said that they are doing well and I am hoping for the best.
