The “Lady in Red” is a unique plant to use for hedging and landscaping accents. It is a deciduous shrub which will lose its leaves at the end of each season. The leaves can vary in colors from golden reds to deep purplish crimsons.
The leaves are of a delicate, almost paper-like design. Another distinctive feature is the shrub also has a paper-like bark which peels and sheds from the main branches.
The pale-pink to cream-coloured flowers form in summer in corymbs, flowerheads that have buds clustered together in a wider plane from a single stalk. After the season of flowers, it forms brown, bladder-like fruits.
The Physocarpus is good to plant in sun to partially shaded areas. Please keep in mind, the amount of sunlight it receives affects the brilliance of the leaves.
The shrub is great for urban settings as it both provides unusual landscaping accents and tolerates poorer air quality. As such, it can be great for urban hedging and accenting beds and borders.
