  • Appearance: Ninebark is a medium-sized shrub that typically reaches heights of 5 to 10 feet (1.5 to 3 meters). It has distinctive, peeling bark that exfoliates in thin, papery layers, revealing various shades of reddish-brown, tan, or gray underneath. The leaves are lobed and resemble those of the common garden plant, the European spindle tree (Euonymus europaeus).

  • Flowers: In late spring to early summer, ninebark produces clusters of small, cup-shaped flowers. The flowers can range in color from white to shades of pink, depending on the specific variety or cultivar. They are attractive to pollinators, including bees and butterflies.

  • Fruit: After flowering, ninebark develops small, dry seed capsules that contain tiny seeds. These capsules can persist on the shrub into the winter, providing food for birds and small mammals.

  • Cultivars: There are several cultivars of Physocarpus opulifolius available in the horticultural trade, each with distinct characteristics. For example, 'Diabolo' has deep purple foliage, 'Summer Wine' features wine-red leaves, and 'Dart's Gold' has bright yellow foliage. These cultivars offer a range of options for gardeners and landscape designers.

  • Garden Use: Ninebark is a versatile and low-maintenance shrub that is often used in landscaping. It can serve as a hedge, screen, or border plant and is also suitable for naturalized or wildlife-friendly gardens. Its peeling bark, colorful foliage, and adaptability make it a popular choice for various garden designs.

  • Hardiness: Ninebark is known for its adaptability to a wide range of growing conditions, including both sun and partial shade. It is a hardy shrub that can tolerate drought once established.

Care Instructions

Different plants have different watering needs. Check the soil moisture by inserting your finger about an inch into the soil. If it feels dry, water the plant until the water drains from the bottom of the pot. Avoid overwatering, as it can lead to root rot.
