Eastern ninebark

Physocarpus opulifolius

Eastern ninebark is easily grown in average, well-drained soil in full sun to part shade. It is an upright, somewhat coarse, deciduous shrub noted for its exfoliating bark which peels in strips to reveal several layers of reddish to light brown inner bark. Bark provides winter interest but is usually hidden by the foliage during the growing season. Small pink to white, five-petaled flowers appearing in dense clusters in late spring. Flowers give way to drooping clusters of reddish fruit in the fall.
