Physocarpus opulifolius Amber Jubilee

Post  Lost2301 on Mon Aug 01, 2016 3:13 am

I have had this tree in a nursery pot for several years while I worked on it. Have trimmed off a number of major limbs over the years and I have a hard time finding where I did it. I put it in a Chuck Iker pot this year and it is responding with new growth now. Very fast grower and needs to be attended to on a regular basis. Back buds pretty good to. I have 2 other Ninebarks that are in training. The only down side is it is hard to see them bloom because they grow so fast you have to keep cutting them back thus no flower buds. It might just be a timing issue as to when to stop cutting back to get blooms?

Usually they respond well to chopping, I chopped one back about 4 weeks ago and one of the 3 trunks did not bud back, just from the ground up. Oh well, now its a twin trunk tree! It was growing in a gravel bunker and I took it out this spring and it had rooted through the holes in the soil. So I did end up root chopping as well, so maybe that had something to do with loosing a trunk?

I would like to find one of the miniature leaved "little devils" with a nice trunk on it. So far I have found some shrubs in #5's but no large trunks on them. I'll keep looking, I bet I find one someday.

with potentially evasively rooting

I have a very tiny push mower to cut it. If its gets to bad, a little round up on it will do the trick. Laughing

Updated photo of the tee at the last weekends show. Lots of nice compliments on it and the pot (Iker).
