Including Physocarpus opulifolius ‘Mindia’

Physocarpus

Common Ninebark

Anywhere eye catching foliar masses are needed, the following deciduous selections can fill the bill. With a leafy, casual look, Physocarpus presents three-lobed leaves, distinctive corymbs of tightly clustered small flowers and earthy red pillow-shaped fruit along their stems. These cold tolerant, Spiraea and Neillia kin possess both a durable, yet alluring bent.

(‘Coppertina’)
Physocarpus opulifolius Mindia

Copper-toned spring leaves distinguish this spectacular new cross between ‘Dart’s Gold’ and ‘Diabolo’, which was bred by Frenchman Jean Paul Divasse. As the weather warms, the foliage adopts a rich red, embellished with a summertime plethora of buttonlike pinkish white blooms and later, decorative scarlet seed heads. Winter reveals a dense, vigorous framework of attractive peeling bark, proving ‘Coppertina’ to be a shrub for all seasons. No special care required, easily hedged and indispensable as a specimen, it deserves a commanding position in your garden. (pp#16371)

Blooms June–July.

Size: 7' 0"–9' 0" high x 8' 0" wide; hardy to zone 4.

Customer Comment:

“I placed a large order & am very pleased with the experience. I chose Digging Dog because they had cultivars that I couldn't find elsewhere & were grown neonic-free. All the plants I received were strong & well-rooted. I will happily order from them again.”
