The blooms are heaviest in spring, but they continue all summer and into fall!

Never "greens out" in summer heat!
Plant Patent Applied For. Cultivar name: 'Bokraspiwi'

This smart little shrub looks like an exotic special, but actually it's easy to grow, very dependable, and super long-blooming. As for the handsome deep purple foliage, that's just a delightful extra!

Spilled Wine™ keeps its purple leaves from spring through fall, not "going green" in summer heat like some others will do. In fact, strong sunlight just intensifies the dark purple hues, so that by mid-August in scorching weather the foliage nearly looks black! Wow!

Just 2 to 3 feet high and wide, Spilled Wine™ greets spring with fresh, glossy violet leaves and bright magenta-pink blooms by the many dozen. The flowers are heaviest in late spring, but continue to come intermittently all summer and fall. In fact, it's hard to catch this tireless rebloomer out of flower!

Irresistible to butterflies and hummingbirds, Spilled Wine™ has a slightly spreading habit, and may end up more wide than tall. This makes it a great choice along pathways, for the front of the border or foundation, or in other mass-planting sites. And it's petite enough to show off in a container all by itself, too! Just give it plenty of sunshine and well-drained soil, pamper it the first season so that it finds its feet, and let it go!

Long-blooming, colorful in leaf as well as flower, compact, and very easy to grow, Spilled Wine™ is one of those glorious all-purpose shrubs that make you wonder why all of gardening can't be this easy and fun. Be sure to add it to your landscape this season! Zones 4-8.
