Summer Wine® Black Ninebark
Physocarpus opulifolius ‘SMNPMS’ USPPAF, CPBRAF
Bred by Tim Wood at Spring Meadow Nursery in Grand Haven, Michigan and introduced by Spring Meadow Nursery and Proven Winners.
Its dark purple-black foliage, the darkest of any ninebark, gives Summer Wine® Black a dramatic presence in the landscape. With its semi dwarf, compact habit, and disease resistant foliage, it offers outstanding potential for landscapers and homeowners alike. Summer Wine® can be planted in full sun and used for mixed borders, hedges, specimens and foundation plantings. It is disease resistant, with a compact habit and pink spring flowers. Adaptable to most well-drained soils and tolerates drought once established. This plant is best left unpruned, but it can be pruned
after blooming if needed. Hardy down to -40 F (-40 C). Zones 3–7.
Available as 1–3 gallon containers from Proven Winners (Booth 3049).
