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 Diamond Jubilee in 2012.
Zone 2 (Canadian and USDA)
Rate: Medium shrub;
mature size: 5-6’ (2 m) x 4’ (1.5 m).
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.
Jubilee® is distinct from purple-foliaged ninebarks. 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.
