Description

Physocarpus are prized for their beautifully coloured, lobed foliage, but Physocarpus opulifolius ‘Magic Ball’ takes this one step further – delivering a stunning spectacle of changing hues from spring until autumn.

The foliage emerges amber orange in spring, transitioning to yellow and green in summer, before deepening to rich crimson and maroon in the autumn. Additional interest is provided by white, pollinator-friendly flowers from July to September.

Its petite proportions make it perfect for structural planting in smaller gardens or even patio containers and courtyards. With its constantly changing foliage display, this undemanding shrub really earns its place, providing a long season of interest and a beautiful foil to flowering plants. Winner of Best New Shrub at the 2022 Horticultural Trades Association National Plant Show. Height and spread: 1.3m (4.2ft).

Plant height and spread is seasonal therefore we list by pot size rather than a defined plant size. The height and spread of the plant delivered will vary depending on the season, meaning arrival images are an indication only.

How to Grow
Plant Physocarpus in a fertile, moist, well-drained soil in full sun or semi-shade. Physocarpus plants prefer an acid to neutral soil, but will tolerate more alkaline soils, although may they may become chlorotic in very chalky areas. Incorporate organic matter such as well-rotted manure or compost into the soil prior to planting.
More Info

Water regularly throughout the growing season until young Physocarpus plants are fully established. In spring, apply a mulch of well rotted manure or compost to the base of the plant. After flowering, cut back the flowered shoots to a healthy pair of buds, unless seedheads are required for late season interest.

Physocarpus opulifolius tolerates fairly hard pruning and may be cut back by half every few years to maintain a smaller size. On mature plants cut back about one quarter to one fifth of the oldest shoots to their base, to promote strong new growth.

Thompson & Morgan strives to ensure that all its plants are delivered to you in the perfect condition for planting. While the majority of our nursery plants cope well with slight delays in intransit, sadly, the time it takes to deliver to certain locations in the UK means that we can't guarantee this for some of our smaller plug products and tender bedding and vegetable lines, which do not respond well to the extra journey time. So regretfully while we offer the majority of our live plant offering nationwide, we are unable to ship plugs, begging plants and tender vegetable plants to the following areas: HS, IV41-IV49, IV51, IV55-56, KW15-KW17, PA34, PA41-48, PA60-PA78, PA80, PH40-PH44, TR21-TR24, ZE1-ZE3
