Physocarpus opulifolius Tiny Wine® is a Proven Winners ninebark cultivar, noted for its compact size and profuse white and pink flower clusters in the late spring. As a 'wine' cultivar, Physocarpus opulifolius Tiny Wine® is also known for its purple tinted foliage through the growing season.

Closely related to meadowsweets, genus Spiraea, Physocarpus opulifolius is found in nature along stream banks or gravelly embankments, and prefers acidic, medium to dry, well-drained soils and full to part sun. Though full size Physocarpus can reach heights of six to nine feet tall, Tiny Wine® grows to a more manageable height and width of three to four feet, making it a great choice for gardeners without the space for a 'Summer Wine' or 'Diabolo' selection in their landscape, while maintaining the ecological appeal of the original species, which attracts butterflies, pollinators, and all sorts of birds.

Used to dealing with harsh conditions, Physocarpus opulifolius Tiny Wine® is a great addition to hedgerow creations in drier climates as well as those with compacted clay soils, and can also be planted on slopes to help control erosion. After the purple foliage falls away in the autumn, wild branching patterns and eye-catching exfoliating bark give this plant additional winter interest.
