Hello Frenchy - Thanks for your appreciation. I can't believe how beautifully it has turned out in the last two years. It's like the story of the Ugly Duckling. For the first four years, it was this pitiful looking bunch of twigs, growing in the sandy soil that I call a garden. I amend it where and when I can, and then the hurricane force winds come and blow it all away. But finally it is able to show its true colours!

Is this weigela a smaller type or could it get big? I'm looking for a compact one with the dark leaves like yours.

I just checked on Google and saw a smaller variety called Spilled Wine, that is similar, but only 2 to 3 ft. tall. Check it out. There is one photo in the Database, but the leaves looked darker in most of the Google photos.
