Physocarpus opulifolius PANTHER ‘N5‘ PBR
Physocarpus opulifolius Panther ‘N5‘ PBR
A variety with a rounded habit and very dark, almost black foliage, the darkest of the cultivars available on the market. The bush is dense, forms straight shoots covered with dark burgundy bark, and grows up to 1.5-2 m in height. The size of the leaves is similar to that of strong-growing varieties. Light pink flowers develop in May. They are beautifully displayed against the background of dark foliage. Shrub with low cultivation requirements, both at the stage of nursery production and after planting on the target site. High resistance to diseases and pests, full frost resistance and tolerance to soil type and location, give a wide potential for using this new variety in private and urban green areas.
