Gold foliage in a small package. Tiny Wine® Gold is a yellow leafed version of Tiny Wine® dwarf ninebark. Both plants share the same attractive bushy habit and small, refined leaves, but differ in their foliage color. In addition to its cheery yellow leaves, Tiny Wine Gold ninebark blooms heavily, bearing dozens of pink buds that open to white flower clusters. It makes an especially nice display in the container at the time of sale. Very good mildew resistance. Native.

Growing Tips Though physocarpus can grow in part shade, flowering, foliage color, and disease resistance is best with a minimum of six hours of sun. Physocarpus is amenable to pruning and recovers from it quickly; however, frequent cutting back may cause the plant to develop an odd habit.
