Garden Plant: Summer Wine Ninebark
Product Description: Summer Wine Ninebark
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!
