A Hot Pop of Color in an Easy-Care Shrub!

The hottest color in gardening the last few years has to be light green/chartreuse. Not only does it look great on its own, but it makes almost any color around it pop. Many plants that have this unique color require a little pampering, but not Lemon Candy Ninebark (Physocarpus opulifolius 'Podaras 3' PP#22362). Lemon Candy is covered in nicely ruffled chartreuse leaves from spring to fall and ninebarks are one of the most gracious plants you can add to your garden or landscape.

This plant is naturally pretty. It has a beautiful arching form that doesn't need deadheading or pruning. This means that year after year it looks great with you barely having to lift a finger! This is a naturally dwarf version of ninebark, but commands attention worthy of a plant twice its size.

You'll want to give this native a sunny spot for best color. It looks great with deep greens and burgundies. It also stands out nicely against a stained fence, a red brick wall and even looks good above its wood mulch.

As if the leaf color weren't enough, it also busts out with sparkling white flowers that seem to float all over the plant in the spring.

Let Lemon Candy make it look like you follow the latest garden fashions without all the effort! Order yours today!

  • 4 seasons of interest
  • Easy, low-maintenance native
  • No deadheading or pruning necessary
