Tangy chartreuse foliage contrasts deep red stems on this stunning compact shrub, sweetly accented with a dusting of white flower clusters. Compact and easy to grow, requiring little pruning or care. Useful accent for a border or low hedge or massed in a low maintenance landscape. Deciduous. Tolerates most soil types. Best color in full sun. Avoid extreme heat and humidity. Water regularly during first growing season to establish deep, extensive root system. Requires less water when established. Prune by one third in late winter. Fertilize in spring.

History and Lore: The Latin name Physocarpus comes from the Greek words physo (bladder) and karpon (fruit) in reference to the red bladder-shaped fruits that appear after flowering. The common name of Ninebark comes from the appearance of the bark, which peels away in layers. The inner bark was brewed into a pain reliever and remedy for many other maladies by Native American tribes within this plant’s range. Roots were sometimes steam cooked and eaten and plants were used as charms to cause bad luck.
