Physocarpus opulifolius, Ninebark
Clusters of of white fluffy flowers bloom up and down long arching stems on the Missouri native Ninebark, Phyocarpus opulifolius. Small attractive red berries follow the showy flowers in summer. The maple-leaf shaped green leaves on long stems create a graceful vase shaped shrub. The showy shaggy foliage which can be well-seen after the leaves drop in fall add pretty winter interest. Host plant to an array of native insects.
Ninebark shrubs thrive in many different light and soil conditions. A choice shrub for dry shallow soils, but can also thrive in consistently wet soils. Great for use in erosion control. Chosen as a Missouri Botanical Garden Plant of Merit for its ornamental qualities and ability to thrive in the St. Louis area.
