A superior habit with yellow leaves and loads of flowers!

Physocarpus opulifolius Raspberry Lemonade™

Ideal for smaller spaces and urban gardens, the dense, mounding habit of Raspberry Lemonade™ opens new opportunities for this beloved native shrub. Fine-textured, yellow foliage brightens the landscape followed by clusters of white flowers and coral-red fruits.

You’re going to love this amazing new ninebark from our breeder and friend David Zlesak! Ideal for smaller spaces and urban gardens, the dense, mounding habit of Raspberry Lemonade™ opens new opportunities for this beloved native shrub. With a habit superior to others currently offered, this ninebark’s exceptional branching allows for plants to fill in nicely with minimal need for pruning.

In early spring, fine textured, golden-green foliage brightens the landscape and serves as the perfect backdrop for an abundance of lovely white flowers clustered together at the tips of every branch. Flowers give way brightly colored coral-red fruits that hold their color for a few weeks—hence the name Raspberry Lemonade™. So, plant a few Raspberry Lemonades close enough to your favorite out door space, grab a cool beverage, sit back, relax and enjoy the scenery!
