    Ninebark (Physocarpus opulifolius) Coppertina™ is an attractive flowering shrub, native to eastern North America. Pinkish-white late spring blooms contrast dramatically with the copper foliage, which turns bright red in the fall. Coppertina is a cross between P. opulifolius ‘Darts Gold’ and P. opulifolius ‘Monlo.’ P. opulifolius has special value to native and honey bees.

    This is a very easy going shrub. Grows quickly, yet responds well to pruning so you can keep it at whatever size you like, or let it grow as large as it likes. Beautiful foliage - bright copper red in the summer, and a darker magenta in the fall. I have not had any problems with this, likely because we have a PNW native ninebark so this cultivar feels quite at home. I have it in full sun on a west facing slope and it gets very little supplemental watering (just some sprinkler action in August).
