There are few shrubs that are easier to grow than Ninebark. This native American shrub adapts to most conditions you can throw at it without batting an eye. Disease resistant, pest resistant and not bothered by woodland critters, it's hard to find a friendlier shrub for the home gardener.
Now add to the growing collection of new Ninebarks the exquisite Tiny Wine Ninebark (Tiny Wine® Physocarpus opulifolius 'SMPOTW' PPAF). This is a beautifully small and perfectly formed Ninebark, not the large leggy version you might be used to. This new version of the native shrub is gorgeous in the garden bed and small enough for a container, too.
Tiny Wine has almost indescribable flowers - like striped pink and white super-mini clusters of wild roses. The leaves are burgundy-maroon and mildew resistant. Since the plant is so small it doesn't get leggy like bigger ninebarks are prone to do. It doesn't flop over and keeps itself neat and tidy all season.
The stems are a deep russet-brown, and the new foliage is bright bronze, turning to burgundy-maroon. These dark red tones stay throughout summer and fall making this one super showy and unusual shrub for your garden.
This is a shrub for year round good looks. Once the blooms in spring and fall have passed and the beautiful leaves have dropped for the winter, the true ninebark nature comes out. The exposed bark of Tiny Wine has a striking peeling appearance that brings interest to the winter garden.
