Physocarpus means bladder fruit; opulifolius refers to a similarity in appearance of ninebark and Viburnum opulus leaves, an imported European ornamental shrub.
The flowers are top notch nectar and the red, winter fruit is loved by finches, wrens, thrushes, robins, sparrows and chickadees.
Ninebark has no known disease or insect problems, is drought tolerant and does fine in clay soil.
The rain has stopped so we'll get them in the ground today.
