Description How to Grow More Info Delivery
This striking Ninebark has royal connections, as it was named in honour of the Queen Elizabeth’s Diamond Jubilee. Distinctive, highly decorative leaves emerge in spring in salmon-orange shades, creating a stunning display early in the year, before turning to green as they mature. Gorgeous clusters of small creamy white flowers bloom in June, followed later by burgundy fruits. The fiery shades of the foliage will be sure to create a talking point, which can be sited in a mixed border where it will provide year round interest and maintain a compact, rounded habit. Height and spread: 1.5m (5’).

Height Up to 150cm (60in)

Plant Physocarpus in a fertile, moist, well-drained soil in full sun or semi-shade. Physocarpus plants prefer an acid to neutral soil but will tolerate more alkaline soils. Incorporate organic matter such as well-rotted manure or compost into the soil prior to planting. Plant ninebark bareroots at the same depth as they were previously planted. Backfill the planting hole, gently firm down, and water well to settle the soil.
Water regularly throughout the growing season until young Physocarpus plants are fully established. In spring, apply a mulch of well rotted manure or compost to the base of the plant. Ninebark requires little attention. After flowering, cut back the flowered shoots to a healthy pair of buds, unless seedheads are required for late season interest. Physocarpus opulifolius tolerates fairly hard pruning and may be cut back by half every few years to maintain a smaller size. On mature plants cut back about one quarter to one fifth of the oldest shoots to their base, to promote strong new growth.
