White flowers burst forth from deep red branches on this winebark each spring. The foliage of Summer Wine Black Ninebark (Physocarpus opulifolius) is the darkest winebark foliage yet. The shrub really resembles wine so dark that it is nearly black. That means even when it's not flowering, you can enjoy the deep red branches as a contrast to the greens and yellows of your garden. But since Summer Wine blooms from spring through fall, you might as well fall in love with its cascade of elegant white flowers.

The best part is that you can get this dramatic effect with very little work. Ninebark is an easy shrub to grow and is native to North America. It looks best with no pruning! Just plant Summer Wine Black Ninebark in full sun with plenty of space (for air) around it. It will reach an upright but cascading shape at a size of five to six feet high and wide. It's one of the most versatile plants you can place in your landscape because its size, unique shape and color make it a perfect standalone focal plant or a background for smaller plants. You can plant several winebark as a low screen or along the border of your yard or garden in zones 3 through 7.

Summer Wine Black Ninebark Care

Although your Summer Wine Black Ninebark requires no annual pruning or deadheading, you can help it look its best and flower well by removing heavy, old wood branches every few years. Don't trim your winebark back like you do most shrubs. The plant can handle most soil types and needs average watering but is drought tolerant after the first year. You can scatter some balanced fertilizer around the base of the plant the first year, but it's not necessary. All the shrub needs is full sun to achieve the dark red color.

Summer Wine Black Ninebark Spacing

Space your winebark plants at least five or six feet from each other or from walls, fences or other shrubby plants. It needs air circulation to thrive, but Summer Wine Black Ninebark seldom is affected by insects or diseases.

Interesting Fact(s) - Ninebark is native to 37 states and all of eastern Canada.

Plant Addicts Warranty - 1 Year (Extra Purchase Required)

We encourage all plant lovers to purchase the Plant Addicts Warranty, whether you're a new gardener or an expert. There are many variables outside of anyone's control that can cause a plant to die. Hungry animals, drought, poor soil conditions, over watering, diseases & pests are all good examples of what can cause plants to die. The Plant Addicts Warranty is a 1 year warranty protecting you from all of the unknowns and will replace your plant if something were to happen to it.

The warranty is purchased on a per plant basis and must be purchased at the same time as the plant(s). We will cover 100% of the price of the plant, but the warranty does not cover shipping costs. SImply let us know if your plant has died within 1 year of receiving it and we will get you a new one shipped out as soon as possible (depending on the time of the year and availability). We may ask for photos for documentation purposes, but we try to make the process as easy as possible.

Guarantee and Warranty

Plant Shipping

Below are some factors we consider when determining when to ship the plants depending on the timing of the order.

Winter to Early Spring

We ship only when it's warm enough to plant in your growing zone.
Sometimes plants aren't completely ready to sell and ship in early spring. We will wait until the plants are ready before shipping so you don't get a subpar product.
For Southern plants we will be able to ship much earlier than plants coming from our northern nursery.

Summer

If there is extreme heat we may delay shipping for a week or several weeks.
We review what areas the plants are traveling through as well as your location.

Fall into Winter

We’ll ship plants out all the way up to the end of the fall planting season!

Winter

Get your order in early to reserve your plants for Spring planting!

Once your plant is shipped you’ll receive an automated email with tracking information.
