Here’s a flowering shrub that’s native to much of North America – Physocarpus opulifolius. We call it ninebark because the bark, with as it ages, peels back in layers. Loved by pollinators, I’ve found it seeds easily in my back, wildish area, likely thanks to birds disbursing the seeds.
For my conditions, the best thing about this shrub is how hardy it is. They’ve survived dry spells that have felled trees and other shrubs, and will grow in pretty much any type of soil. Many cultivars have been created, especially ones with reddish leaves and pinky flowers, but I think my favourite remains the original.
