Ninebark - Golden
The Golden Ninebark, Physocarpus opulifolius 'Luteus', is grown for its beautiful yellow-green foliage which lights up the garden.
It is a deciduous shrub with clusters of small white flowers and interesting peeling bark.
The leaves are initially yellow, and when grown in full sun they gradually change to yellowish green or light green. The yellow foliage color intensifies again before falling in autumn.
Golden Ninebark grows best with regular watering and protection from the hottest sun.
Use this plant in the landscape as a border or background for perennial or annual flower beds or in foundation plantings of larger buildings.
The Golden Ninebark is a fast grower and new shoots can be cut and used in floral arrangements.
As with most ninebarks, it has attractive exfoliating bark and attractive fruits for 4 season interest. This plaant is not fussy about soil types and pH levels.
