Physocarpus opulifolius 'Jefam' Amber Jubilee

Amber Jubilee™ Ninebark

Deciduous Shrub

Foliage on this variety of the ninebark shrub is characterized by warm, almost "autumnal" tones—pairs wonderfully with a wide range of foliage colors, but looks especially great with mahogany, golden-yellow, blue, and/or gray partners. Clusters of ivory flowers in spring develop into attractive seed pods that decorate the shrub well into summer. Best color in full sun. I consider its fall color an asset, but not it's not its main claim to fame.
