Native to North America. Bark on older plants exfoliates into papery strips. Fruit is very beautiful in the fall. An exciting new improvement to Ninebark, Summer Wine® combines the fine texture and compact branching of Physocarpus ‘Nana’ with the dark foliage of Physocarpus ‘Diabolo’. Smaller and more highly branched than other ninebark varieties Summer Wine® ninebark is an easy way to introduce dark purple foliage into the home garden. It is fast growing and has few, if any, pest problems. Pruning and other maintenance is rarely needed. Use it as a bold accent or part of a mixed border. Summer Wine™ may even be cut for use in arrangements. This is a trouble-free addition to either the home or commercial landscape.
