Some plants are just rock stars. Center Glow Ninebark (Physocarpus opulifolius 'Center Glow') is one of those elevated, exciting plants you'll love to be around.

Take time to really study the fresh new foliage as it emerges yellow-green in spring. The leaves mature into bright red starting at the margins - and we're talking vivid, rosy red - in early summer. The yellow golden center is really something to talk about!

It's an outstanding performance, and the sweet clusters of white and pink flowers only add to the excitement. You'll come back to this popular shrub over the whole growing season.

The neighbors are checking it out, too.

And no wonder! There is always something going on with it. From white flowers in spring, to outstanding burgundy foliage all summer, to beautiful bright red fruit in fall, to the interesting exfoliating bark in winter - Center Glow is a four season dynamo.

For the best quality, give Center Glow at least 6 hours of sun a day. Well drained soil is a must. It can handle a little bit of moist soil, but it needs to drain quickly. It is best to be planted in full sun; 'Center Glow' needs a well-drained site.

This plant was developed by Dr. Harold Pellet at the University of Minnesota. You KNOW it will stand up to the cold at your place - even those notorious wind tunnel side yards that nobody knows what to do with. Plant a nice, long row of Center Glow in that space. You'll get beautiful privacy and color, color, color!

Many people choose to use Center Glow as a fabulous background for perennial or annual flower beds. It would also make a great anchor plant at the corner of your house in your foundation planting.

It makes a charming addition to your beautiful garden. Don't forget to try cutting some of the arched shoots for cut flower arrangements.

This shrub might just become your favorite. As with most Ninebarks, it has attractive exfoliating bark and attractive fruits for 4 seasons of interest. Order yours today, but hurry! We sell out of this variety.
