Sweet Cherry Tea Ninebark

Ninebark has always had gorgeous blooms, but it's never had them twice in a growing season before. Sweet Cherry Tea's leaves start cherry red and mature to a deep purple. The blooms appear in spring and again in midsummer—lovely pastel clusters shining over the dark leaves. It still does all the things we love from ninebark. It's tough—a workhorse that'll spruce up places in your garden that poor soil usually makes hard to plant. Don't be disappointed when the leaves drop off for winter, on the bare tree you'll be able to see that gorgeous exfoliating bark the species was named for. Physocarpus opulifolius 'ZLEBic5'
