Product Information

Eye-catching and reliable, this ‘Lady in Red’ shrub could not be simpler to care for, yet still offers an invaluable spark of colour for months with serrated red leaves and summertime blooms.

The stems of this tall and bushy variety are brown, with a mahogany-like tint when young. Fascinating lobed leaves coat the plant in a rich shade of wine red, holding firm across spring and summer.

Summer sun encourages the appearance of clustering pinkish white rounded flowers in flurries, forming an idyllic contrast against the dark foliage. The blooms are soon followed by autumnal red berries to complete the attraction.

Supremely easy to grow and weather-proof once established, this hardy Physocarpus thrives whether grown in sun or shade, truly standing out in a mixed border alongside bright flowering perennials.

Fully deserving its coveted RHS Award of Garden Merit, you can be sure this is a proven garden performer, guaranteed to be suitable for UK gardeners at every level of experience. You can therefore plant this in the garden with confidence, for stunning displays for many years to come.

Supplied as an established plant in a 9cm pot, ready for planting.

Top Tips

  • 'Lady in Red' best thrive in fertile, moist, well-drained soil in a spot of either full sun or light shade.

Care Information

  • Dig a planting hole three times the width of the roots of the shrub you're planting and mix some well-rotted compost or manure with the soil from the hole and use this to re-fill once the shrub is in place.
  • We've found that a square hole is better than a round one as the new roots, once they reach the edges tend to grow in a circle round the circumference of the hole whereas when they reach the corners of a square hole, they find it easier to grow through.
  • Before planting, soak container-grown shrubs thoroughly and allow to drain.
  • Remove the plant from its pot and tease out a few of the roots. Add Mycorrhizal fungi to the roots when planting to help plants establish quicker.
  • Place your shrub in the hole at the same level at the pot and refill the hole with the earth removed (backfilling).
  • Firm in the soil with your heel, avoiding the root ball and water well.
  • Mulch around the base of the plant with a collar, compost, gravel, bark etc.
  • If you're planting into pots, place some old rocks, stones or gravel in the bottom of the pot for drainage and ballast.
  • Use the best compost you can buy and some sand or grit for drainage.
