Physocarpus opulifolius

Common name: Ninebark

Native plant

Ninebark blooms pink to white in June in umbel-like clusters. Exfoliating bark exposes a cinnamon-brown inner bark. Great in shrub borders. 

This is a very durable large shrub. I have seen it growing on Pike’s Peak, which is a palisade overlooking the Mississippi River in northeast Iowa. It had all the things a plant needs to grow: no soil, wind, and full sun!
