Gold Turns into Lime

The Ninebark 'Dart's Gold', Physocarpus opulifolius 'Dart's Gold', is named for its broad three-lobed golden spring foliage, which turns lime green in the summer. It matures to 4'-5' with an equal spread.

This fine shrub is also notable for its wide arching branches tipped with pink-dusted white flowers. For best results, place in full sun to light shade. It will need at least 6 hours of sun to perform.

This Ninebark has golden leaves, white flowers, red fruit, papery bark, and is attractive in winter. 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 Dart’s Gold 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 fruit for 4 season interest. Dart's Gold is a very adaptable deciduous shrub. It will tolerate dry conditions and will grow in full sun.

bark attraction Review by Pipefitters
I like the color of Darts Gold ninebark and I also enjoy watching this plant mature in my backyard. Each year the bark gets more interesting and attractive. I guess it is something different to see when the ground is covered with snow.
Glows in Twilight Review by shazergarden
We purchased Darts Gold on a whim - having never grown Ninebark before - and it became our favorite shrub we planted last year. We clustered three in a triangular position on a slope off our backyard deck and every night as the sun prepared to set, the ninebark would just glow on the hill. THe leaves are a gorgeous lime green and stay this color well into the summer. Since this is a decideous shrub, I noticed that the leaves got rather tired and lost their glow as fall approached. In the spring, when the leaves begin to unravel on the branches, they look like bright flowers. Would look amazing paired with a bright flower or contrasting color light hot pink, purple or coral.
