Amber Jubilee™ Ninebark
Physocarpus opulifolius 'Jefam'
5 feet high x 4 feet wide
Upright rounded shape
Full Sun to Part Shade
First Editions® Amber Jubilee™ Ninebark was selected by our grower for its striking foliage, in glowing tones of orange, yellow and gold, season long. But that’s not all—in early summer expect Amber Jubilee to be covered in delicate white flowers and in autumn expect the leaves to be highlighted in tones of red and purple—a perfect plant for an eye-catching hedge or in the garden border.
Throughout this site, the following are used as guidelines for watering established plants:
These truly xeric plants can live with our 12 inches of natural annual precipitation and only need a winter watering during a multi-year drought, but they will thrive with a monthly watering. Overwatering will kill some of these.
These plants are adapted to intermittent deep watering with soil drying to a depth of a few inches between waterings. Watering frequency may be every couple of weeks during the active growing season and maybe only one winter watering for optimal care.
These plants need regular watering somewhat like a bluegrass lawn so that they never dry to depth in the root system during the active growing season, and need occasional winter watering to prevent root dessication and resultant plant death.
About sizes of our plants:
Sizes indicated with a # are roughly the equivalent in gallonage; so a #2 is about a 2 gallon pot size; b&b stands for balled and burlapped.
