Product Information

Grown mainly for its colourful leaves, they emerge in the spring in rich tones, creating a stunning show which ends in autumn as the leaves turn red and purple before falling in an extravagant cascade of colour. The show isn't restricted to the leaves however, as Physocarpus is shrub with exceptional year-round interest.

Lady in Red is a deciduous shrub with fresh red foliage toning to a brown- bronze as the season progresses. It bears clusters of pink flowers in summer.

A compact shrub, bred to perform in your garden, Physocarpus is a garden plant that very few other gardeners will have, and its colour changing nature makes this a garden must-have and certainly a plant that you'll want to give pride of place to so that everyone can see it!

Really easy to grow and practically trouble free, the unique foliage will form the perfect backdrop for your other garden plants and goes especially well with blues and purples.

Top Tips

Physocarpus ninebark plants are low maintenance, but they do benefit from regular pruning after flowering to promote fresh new branches from the base.

Care Information

Planting Advice for your Physocarpus ninebark:

  • Plant in any moist, well drained garden soil, in full sun or semi-shade.
  • Water your potted plant well.
  • Dig a hole a little deeper and 3 x wider than the nursery pot.
  • Add a soil conditioner such as well-rotted manure to the earth removed from the hole if necessary.
  • Remove the plant from its pot and tease out a few of the roots.
  • Dig a planting hole and sprinkle mycorrhizal fungi (Rootgrow) into the base.
  • Place your plant in the hole at the same level at the pot.
  • Refill the hole with the earth removed (backfilling).
  • Firm in the soil with your heel, avoiding the root ball.
  • Water well and mulch around the base of the plant with a collar, compost, gravel, bark etc.


Aftercare Advice for Physocarpus:

  • Drought tolerant once established, keep plants well-watered in their first year.


Pruning Advice for Physocarpus:

  • Prune ninebark after it flowers (no later than mid-August) to maintain its shape and to remove any damaged or dead branches.
  • Older shrubs can be pruned close to the ground for winter to renew the plant and encourage better leaf and flower growth. Ninebark will recover well after pruning.
