Tiny Wine® Ninebark

The name “ninebark” derives from the peeling mature bark, which makes it look like there are multiple layers of bark on the plant. It is a very appealing winter effect. Ninebark is a rugged native plant that is very useful for cold, exposed landscapes. Tiny Wine® is smaller than other dwarf varieties in the market, with small, refined leaves. The dark bronze-maroon foliage is colorful all season, and contrasts with the dainty pinkish-white flowers that cover the stems in spring. It has superior disease-resistance, including resistance to powdery mildew. It adds durable season-long color to landscapes. Physocarpus will tolerate clay soils, and extablished plants will also tolerate some drought.
