2 litre pot 25cm £16.99

This shrub is deciduous so it will lose all its leaves in autumn, then fresh new foliage appears again each spring.

  • Position: full sun or partial shade
  • Soil: preferably acid, fertile, moist but well-drained soil
  • Rate of growth: average
  • Flowering period: June
  • Hardiness: fully hardy

    This ninebark has only just been introduced, but already it is winning awards. It has a well-branching structure that means there is lots of lush foliage, which is bright orange-red when it first appears, but will mature to a darker shade of burgundy-red. This colouring is very useful for adding depth of colour and contrast to the mixed or shrub border, and in early summer, the clusters of white flowers (and subsequent fruit) offer even more interest. A compact plant, it will also look great in a pot on the patio.

  • Garden care: Once established, cut back up to one in four of the oldest stems to their base, after flowering. Then, apply a generous 5-7cm (2-3in) mulch of well-rotted garden compost around the base of the plant.
