AMBER JUBILEE® NINEBARK - Physocarpus opulifolius 'Jefam'

Origin: A seedling of the cross ‘Diabolo’ x ‘Darts Gold’ made by Mr. Rick Durand of Jeffries Nurseries Ltd. Amber Jubilee Ninebark was named in honour of Queen Elizabeth’s upcoming Diamond Jubilee in 2012. During a visit to Winnipeg on July 3rd, 2010 her majesty Queen Elizabeth II took part in the ceremonial planting of this new shrub created in her honour. 

Hardiness: Zone 2 (Canadian and USDA)

Size: A medium shrub reaching a mature height of 5-6’ (2 m) and a width of 4’ (1.5 m).

Description: Amber Jubilee offers a unique blend of foliage colours including new growth that takes on shades of yellow and orange in summer before turning purple in the fall. Foliage on mature sections of the plant is lime-green. Annual pruning of the stem tips will help this plant look its best.

Landscape Value: Amber Jubilee is distinct from purple-foliaged ninebarks such as CenterGlow, Coppertina and Summer Wine. Its foliage is an improvement over long-time cultivar Dart’s Gold. Amber Jubilee will be effective as a medium shrub in the landscape, whether massed or planted in small groupings.
