Product Details

Product Details

The upright stems of this exceptional Ninebark carry deep burgundy leaves, and in spring, they light up with small white flower clusters. These low-maintenance, very tough shrubs make a fine addition to foundation plantings and mixed borders. A Proven Winners® variety. 'SMNPMS' PPAF

Physocarpus is a small genus (about 10 species) of shrubs in the Rose family. The Spirea-like clusters of small flowers in early summer are an attractive feature, as is the peeling bark that develops with age. Average, slightly acid, well-drained soil is best.

The size of the plants we ship has been selected to reduce the shock of transplanting. For some, this means a large, bareroot crown. Others cannot travel bareroot or transplant best if grown in containers. We ship these perennials and annuals in 1 pint pots, except as noted. We must point out that many perennials will not bloom the first year after planting, but will the following year, amply rewarding your patience. We ship bulbs as dormant, bare bulbs, sometimes with some wood shavings or moss. Shrubs, Roses, vines, and other woody plants may be shipped bareroot or in pots. The size of the pot is noted in the quick facts for each item.


We ship our bulbs and plants at the right time for planting in your area, except as noted, with orders dispatched on a first-come, first-served basis by climate zone. Estimated dates for shipping are indicated in the Shipping Details box for each item. Please refer to the Shipping Details box to determine the earliest shipping time. Unless you specify otherwise, fertilizers, tools, and other non-plant items are shipped with your plants or bulbs. Please supply a street address for delivery. Kindly contact us with two weeks notice, if you'll be away at expected time of delivery.


We guarantee to ship plants that are in prime condition for growing. If your order is damaged or fails to meet your expectations, we will cheerfully replace or refund it.

Latin Name Pronunciation: fie-so-car'pus  

Physocarpus is a multiple-stemmed shrub hardy in zones 3–8 S&W. Plants grow to 4–6′ with a width of 6–10′. White flowers in May–June. Foliage is rounded and dense; with a rather ragged appearance in winter. Plants have a medium to fast rate of growth, 12–24″ or more per year under good growing conditions. Bark on older stems will peel, revealing the rich brown inner bark. Reddish-colored small fruit in September are attractive.

CULTURE: Full sun. Not fussy about soil; average, well-drained soil will give best results, but they can also tolerate dryness. Space 5–6′ apart. Fertilize once in early spring with a balanced fertilizer such as 10-10-10. Tolerates both acid and alkaline soil.

PRUNING: Cut to ground in late winter.

PROBLEMS: No notable insect or disease problems.

SUGGESTED USE: In shrub border, in native plant collections, as a screen.
