This plant does best in sites with good air circulation. Prune as needed immediately after flowering; older plants can be rejuvenated by trimming branches down to the ground in winter.
The name “ninebark” derives from the peeling mature bark, which makes it look like there are multiple layers of bark on the plant. It is a very appealing winter effect. Ninebark is a rugged native plant that is very useful for cold, exposed landscapes. Tiny Wine® Gold has brilliant yellow new growth, small, refined foliage and clusters of white-pink flowers in spring. A little smaller than your average ninebark, it fits well into landscapes and adds durable season-long color to gardens. Physocarpus will tolerate clay soils, and extablished plants will also tolerate some drought.
