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)
