New Woody Plants for 2023


Weigela Vinho Verde

Vinho Verde is characterized by lime green leaves set off with a bold, black margin. A light crop of red-pink flowers appears in late spring, but the foliage — coupled with an irresistibly neat habit — is the primary reason to grow this beauty. (Zone 5)
