'Nugget' ninebark (Physocarpus opulifolius ‘Nugget’)
fy-so-KAR-pus op-yew-lih-FOE-lee-us
Genus:  Physocarpus
The yellow to lime green foliage of 'Nugget' ninebark makes an interesting contrast with the exfoliating, cinnamon-colored bark. Clusters of white flowers appear along the stems in early summer, followed by dark brown seed capsules, which add winter interest. Unsheared, the plant has a vase-shaped growth habit. -David Graper, Regional Reports: Upper Plains, Fine Gardening issue #122

Care:  Likes full sun to partial shade and moist, well-drained, acidic soil. Shear to shape, if you like.
