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® is smaller than other dwarf varieties in the market, with small, refined leaves. The dark bronze-maroon foliage is colorful all season, and contrasts with the dainty pinkish-white flowers that cover the stems in spring. It has superior disease-resistance, including resistance to powdery mildew. It adds durable season-long color to landscapes. Physocarpus will tolerate clay soils, and extablished plants will also tolerate some drought.
