CoppertinaTM Physocarpus is another amazing Proven Winners® Color Choice® Shrub introduction from our friends at Spring Meadow Nursery! CoppertinaTM Ninebark is the next generation of native ninebark shrubs. CoppertinaTM Physocarpus is a result of a cross between golden-leaved Physocarpus 'Darts Gold' and purple-leaved Physocarpus 'Diabolo' (Monlo) - two of the best landscape Ninebarks. The result is a saucy copper foliaged specimen shrub that sports pink-white flowers in summer and glorious rich red fall foliage. As with all native Ninebarks, CoppertinaTM Physocarpus exhibits beautiful exfoliating bark (As in " Nine Barks") making for four season garden interest.
CoppertinaTM Physocarpus Garden Uses and Care:
Use CoppertinaTM Physocarpus as a specimen focus for any perennial border, as a magnificent privacy hedge, as a patio container shrub or as a bonsai subject. A wonderful native shrub for four season landscape interest. Ninebarks are adaptable to many soil types, from acid to alkaline, and absolutely thrive in rich garden soil. For the best form, prune CoppertinaTM Physocarpus hard for the first three years immediately after bloom. This will promote a dense, shapely habit and double the blooms for the following year. Don't prune in the fall as CoppertinaTM Physocarpus blooms on the previous years' growth. Can easily be pruned over the years into a tree-like form to allow for perennial plantings underneath. Do landscape shrubs get any better than this?
