Ninebark, Summerwine (Physocarpus opulifolius 'Summerwine')
Height: 5-6' Width: 5-6' Zone: 3
Improved variety of Ninebark with neat, compact branching and fine, deeply cut, dark crimson-red leaves. 'Summer Wine' combines the fine texture of Physocarpus 'Nana' with the dark foliage of 'Diabolo'. Requires little pruning. Pinkish-white flowers in mid-summer show nicely against the dark foliage.
