Physocarpus opulifolius, commonly called ninebark, is noted for its exfoliating bark which peels in strips to reveal several layers of reddish to light brown inner bark (hence the common name of ninebark). Bark provides winter interest, but is usually hidden by the foliage during the growing season. Features small pink or white, five-petaled flowers appearing in dense, flat, rounded, 1-2” diameter, spirea-like clusters in late spring. Flowers give way to drooping clusters of reddish fruit. Ovate leaves are green in summer changing to an undistinguished yellow in fall.
