Plant of the Week: TINY WINE® Ninebark

Tiny Wine® any time…

Tiny Wine time is any time you need something colorful, durable, and not too big. Or maybe when you just need a little tipple. At any rate, you can decide.

But when it comes to the shrub, there are a couple of requirements: Ninebark, aka Physocarpus, likes full sun and is really more of a northern plant than a southern one. (We recommend zones 3-7).

Physocarpus is a fantastic plant for exposed sites. Windy conditions that tear up other plants are just what ninebark likes. Good air circulation will help keep away the powdery mildew that the species is prone to getting. However, the dark purple foliage of Tiny Wine® Physocarpus was selected for its resistance to powdery mildew.

This tiny tadpole grows 3-5′ tall and wide. It has pretty pink spring flowers and dainty leaves that offer a more refined texture than many other varieties do.


And a tiny whine

I have a little bit to complain about this week. There is an amazing virtual event for garden communicators that’s right around the corner, and I could be wrong, but I don’t think I saw your name on the registration list!

Okay, I know times are tough, inflation and all, and it’s a risk to spend your good money on professional development when you’re not sure if it will pay off in the long run. I get it.

So, why not try it out for free? Not the whole conference, but the free preview day.

You’ll get a feeling for what the conference is about, with speakers, entrance to the booths, and lots of other fun stuff. The best part? You don’t have to be a member or even an active garden communicator to attend. Maybe you’re thinking about a career in garden communication, or you work in horticulture and just want to gain more knowledge about the industry. This day is for YOU! Join us and see if the full event makes sense for you. You literally have nothing to lose.

Already know you want to attend the GardenComm Virtual Conference but haven’t registered yet? What are you waiting for? Click here to go to the registration page and check that little ditty off your list. You’ll be glad you did.
