Physocarpus – Festivus Gold® – Ninebark – Physocarpus opulifolius
Native to North America
Ninebarks look best and exhibit the highest disease resistance when planted in full sun - a minimum of 6 hours; 8 or more is ideal. Once established, they are quite drought tolerant but benefit from a layer of shredded bark mulch.
Because of their naturally elegant habit, it's best to avoid any kind of regular trimming or pruning of ninebarks. However, dead wood may be removed in spring. Should further pruning be required, do so immediately after flowering is finished.
