Physocarpus - Ninebark

Named for their peeling bark, Physocarpus (Ninebark) are upright, spreading, dense shrubs boasting round clusters of tiny pinkish-white flowers in late spring or early summer, followed by bright red fruits. They are primarily grown for their colorful foliage of palmately lobed leaves which varies in size and color from purple to coppery-orange to bright golden yellow. Their exfoliating bark adds to their seasonal interest. Cold hardy, tough and adaptable, Ninebarks are perfect for mixed borders in full sun or part shade.
