Physocarpus (Common Ninebark)
at Digging Dog
Including Physocarpus opulifolius ‘Mindia’
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.

Named for its broad three-lobed golden spring foliage, which turns lime-green in the summer, this fine shrub is also notable for its wide arching branches with pink-dusted white flowers. The colors blend well with an understory of Geranium ‘Salome’ and Euphorbia x robbiae.
Size: 6' 0" high x 6' 0" wide; hardy to zone 4.
Physocarpus opulifolius ‘Dart’s Gold’ (S-0230)
Email me when this plant is available
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)
Size: 7' 0"–9' 0" high x 8' 0" wide; hardy to zone 4.

I wanted this arrangement to celebrate the diverse beauty that autumn affords. It was photographed by acclaimed garden photographer, Saxon Holt, who happened to be visiting us.
Autumnal Fanfare: Lambent Leaves, Glistening Berries, Fleeting Flowers, last chance for Fantastic Fall Sale, Gift Certificates now on sale!
Here at Digging Dog, we’ve had some welcome rain to actually soak the soil. With the onset of shorter days and chilly nights, a quieter contemplative mood envelopes parts of the garden. As many herbaceous plants are fading into dormancy, evergreen shrubs, bold-toned leaves, textural seed-heads plus plump glistening berries take center stage. The impressive group of plants featured in this newsletter caught my eye when I strolled through the nursery and garden yesterday. I hope you enjoy these compelling autumnal offerings. In many locales throughout the country, there’s still time to tuck some botanical gems into an empty garden nook.
