Amber Jubilee® Ninebark
Four Seasons of Beauty!
Boasting some of the brightest and most beautiful foliage of any Ninebark, this First Edition? glows all spring and summer with tonesof bronze, gold, fiery orange, and scarlet! Spheres of small white blooms adorn the branches in spring, adding their own white and yellow tones and courting the butterflies! Then in fall the foliage takes on new tones, turning red and purple before it falls. Even in the winter Amber Jubilee® makes a spectacle of itself, with the winsome peeling bark that this Genus is known for.
This rounded, dense shrub is a seedling of Diabolo? and Dart's Gold Ninebark, selected for its color-show, but still enjoying the exceptional cold hardiness, drought tolerance, and lovely form of its parents.
The color show is so fantastic that just one will make a striking specimen, and the habit is so compact that even smaller gardens usually have room for a row of 3 or more.
For all you Anglophiles out there, this cultivar was named inhonor of Queen Elizabeth II's Diamond Jubilee. Fit for a queen,this amber wonder will become the crown jewel of any garden!
