A colourful deciduous shrub grown mostly for its maple like foliage, brilliant coppery red at first before deepening to purple-red, the young and mature growth contrasting nicely all season as the shrub grows. Almost as a bonus, attractive heads of white flowers appear in June, followed by colourful red berries that persist until Autumn. A great plant to add interest to beds and borders or as a beautiful flowering hedge or screen with gorgeous foliage that changes all season.

Physocarpus or Ninebarks are deciduous shrubs, easy to grow and tough. they are suited to all soil types but do like good drainage. Because they tolerate a wide range of conditions this is a good shrub for more difficult areas such as banks or dry areas (once well established). They look great partnered with other colourful shrubs or mixed in a perennial border where the richly coloured foliage will fit with many colour schemes bringing interest and height to act as a foil for other smaller plants.
Physocarpus opulifolius Diable D’Or may be grown as a beautifully coloured hedge, by planting 3 of our sturdy shrubs per metre the hedge should develop within a few seasons with just a little formative trimming to the sides, once the desired height (we recommend 100-150cm) is reached these low maintenance shrubs need a single trim after flowering in early Summer to keep them looking good.
