Physocarpus – Summer Wine® Black – Ninebark – Physocarpus opulifolius
Ninebark is native to all but 13 states and all of eastern Canada.
Native to North America
Ninebark is best left unpruned, except for removing any heavy old wood every few years or so. Avoid trimming it back, which will cause it to branch out and distract from its naturally elegant habit. Plant only in full sun.
Ninebark is a versatile landscape, but should be sited in full sun with plenty of space around it and good air circulation to avoid any leaf problems.
