Physocarpus Ninebark is an eye-catching shrub that is mainly for its gorgeous foliage.
Emerging in the spring in a beautifully rich tone, it will create a stunning show which ends in autumn as the leaves turn purple before falling in an extravagant cascade of colour. The show isn't restricted to the leaves however, as Physocarpus is shrub with exceptional year-round interest. In early summer, dense clusters of creamy, sometimes pink-flushed flowers, form neat balls of bloom and these are followed in autumn by red-burgundy fruit pods which extend the colour in your garden right up to leaf-fall!
Fully deserving its coveted RHS Award of Garden Merit, you can be sure that this is a proven garden performer, guaranteed to be suitable for UK gardeners at every level of experience. You can therefore plant this in the garden with confidence, for stunning displays for many years to come.
A compact shrub, bred to perform in your garden, Physocarpus is a garden plant that very few other gardeners will have, and its colour changing nature makes this a garden must-have and certainly a plant that you'll want to give pride of place to so that everyone can see it! Really easy to grow and practically trouble free, the unique foliage will form the perfect backdrop for your other garden plants and goes especially well with blues and purples.
