This species of ninebark hails from the eastern half of North America and is an easy to grow, adaptable shrub. Many cultivars are available, offering gorgeous foliage colors. This hybrid, by Proven Winners, is a cross between Physocarpus ‘Diablo’ and ‘Dart’s Gold’, with shimmering, coppery-red foliage and pink-tinted, late spring flowers followed by showy, red seed capsules. A fast growing, deciduous shrub with a rounded habit, reaching 6 -8 foot tall and 5 -6 foot wide. Good light is needed for best growth, though light shade is helpful in hot areas, where it will appreciate moderate to occasional summer water. The abundant flowers are a valuable nectar source for a wide array of pollinators.
