Physocarpus opulifolius 'Lady in Red' is a red ninebark cultivar noted for its freely branching growth habit, red to purple foliage, and pink flowers, as well as its later than average flowering window.

Well regarded ornamentally and ecologically for its pollinator attracting blooms from June into July, this 'Lady in Red' adds additional contrast to any green landscape, with denser foliage than other ninebark cultivars, thanks to its unique branching habit. In the fall, attractive red foliage turns to dark shades of purple, and berries form from pollinated flowers, which are attractive to birds. Even after the attractive autumn foliage has fallen, the intricate branching pattern and unique exfoliating bark that gives the plant its common name can really shine.

This cultivar grows to between five to six feet tall, with a spread of three to four feet, so it requires a bit more space than the dwarf cultivars, but grows a bit smaller than some of the other wine-colored cultivars. Although the foliage may differ from the straight species, 'Lady in Red' also maintains all the hardiness of the original, and has great tolerance to a wide variety of soil conditions and grows well in drier sites with full sun.
