Ninebark (Physocarpus opulifolius 'Center Glow')
fy-so-KAR-pus op-yew-lih-FOE-lee-us
Genus:  Physocarpus
This ninebark's new leaves unfurl a golden yellow and then mature to a rosy red-burgundy. Clusters of white blooms accompany the dramatic foliage in early summer, followed by bright red seedheads that fade to tan. 'Center Glow' is a fast grower and an ideal candidate for mixed borders or foundation plantings. It grows to 8 to 10 feet tall and almost as wide. In winter, the older stems have attractive peeling bark.
Noteworthy Characteristics:  'Center Glow' exhibits colorful foliage, bright red seedheads, and fast growth.
Care:  Provide full sun and well-drained soil.
