Delicate Pink Blooms Belies Hardiness

The Summer Wine Ninebark, Physocarpus opulifolious 'Seaward', is a new Ninebark that is very neat with compact branching and deeply cut, dark purple-crimson leaves.

The Summer Wine Ninebark is purple ninebark hybrid that resulted from a cross between Nana and Diabolo. This resulted in a 5'-6' plant with a spead of 3'.

It has a profusion of pink blooms in summer and exfoliating bark in autumn. The foliage turns a bright red in autumn.

This plant requires little pruning, but if you need to prune, do it after this plant blooms in summer. Do not prune after mid-August to allow for the flower buds to form for next years' flowers.

This compact ninebark looks great in a pot. Use this plant in groupings or masses, in perennial or shrub borders, containers and as a short screen. Summer Wine is showy and extremely hardy and is prized as a landscape shrub and as a cut flower.

As with other ninebarks, the bark exfoliates in papery strips and with the colorful fruit it produces, this plant is truly a 4 season wonder!
