Species: Pacific Ninebark

Scientific Name: Physocarpus Capitatus

Classification: Deciduous Shrubs



Description: The Pacific Ninebark is a deciduous shrub which can attain a mature height of 3-13 feet. It is native to the West coast of North America, including Alaska, British Columbia, Washington State, Idaho, Oregon and Northern and Central California. It is a hardy shrub which can tolerate a wide range of growing conditions, existing in both wetland environments as well as drier locations as it is drought tolerant. Medium sized leaves range from 1-3 inches long and generally a dark green hue, and bright white flowers sprout in clusters in late spring to early summer. In fall, the flowers yield papery-red fruit which are a staple for local bird species. The bark is heavily layered, giving rise to its name. The species is adaptable to full sun, partial shade or full shade settings, giving landscaping use more versatility, but it prefers moist soils.
