HORTICULTURAL
Plant Sale Text: The heavy flower clusters and exfoliating bark are two good reasons to grow Atlantic ninebark. Developing seed capsules mature from red to tan and last well into the summer. Though it will not sucker, this arching shrub will be wider than it is tall at maturity. Its relaxed form makes it particularly effective as part of a naturalistic planting or a shrub border. This plant has a reputation for being easy to grow in almost any conditions. The Physocarpus genus supports up to 40 lepidoptera species.
