Physocarpus opulifolius

Post  Pavel Slovák on Mon Jan 03, 2011 4:51 pm

Hi all

I want to introduce non-traditional tree. I got it in the spring of 2007 when the reconstruction of the old garden.
The garden is growing as a large shrub with long, straight rods. You pick the plants were half dead. It surprised me healthy, hard dead wood.
Since spring 2007, grew into a plastic container. in the spring of 2009, I transplanted it into a plastic bowl and clean. He began to struggle with child growth. It grows very aggressively and, unfortunately, creates a long internode. I had several times during the growing season to correct. In the fall of the great yellow-red color of leaves. Unfortunately, I forgot to take pictures.
Today I started to clean the tree and work on dead wood. I think the tree has some interesting insights. Still want to try a bit of wire shape, but I do not know how it will be possible. branches are very fragile.

spring 2009

looks like a keeper top me, pavel. suggest keeping the branches short, below the jin. develop more ramification, show the tree defoliated. BTW, great job on the deadwood.

best of the new year.

This is a native American shrub with numerous cultivars, occasionally used for bonsai. The English common name is ninebark, due to the peeling bark.

I am currently developing a P. "Diabolo" as a shohin. This is the cultivar with bronze-purple foliage and here in Scotland it grows quite quickly. The bit I am developing is a cutting from my garden shrub which has grown from seedling to established plant (10ft in height and with multi-trunks) in a 10 year period. The cutting took quite easily with just being shoved into some potting compost and perlite, sealed in a poly bag til it rooted then left to get on with it.

It's pitch black outside just now but I will try to get a pic of it tomorrow.

I'm intrigued by the deadwood you've created on your tree, Pavel. No doubt it was necessary as you had a section of trunk that was actually dead. In my own case, the peeling bark Iris mentions is a feature of the "Diabolo" and my planned method of dealing with the trunk will be to as I would a Potentilla. in other words, nature is doing such a fine job all by herself, I am not anticipating having to "create" deadwood at all. All I'll need to do is enhance the natural peeled bits.

Hi Fiona,
thank you for your nice coment. Very Happy
I also have the garden variety red. This my in pot is about 20 years old. Deadwood on the plant is about 8 years old. I also have some young plants, cuttings multiply rapidly even in a classical garden compost.

Lots of character, Pavel. I like "stumps"! It would be even better if the deadwood (jin) was a bit taller. I am sure you will make a very nice tree. Good eye, Pavel.

Post  kevin stoeveken on Fri Mar 04, 2016 6:02 pm

just wondering if there is any update from pavel or fiona on their ninebark ?

i bought one last year in fall and just trunk chopped it and stuck the container in the ground over winter...
2-3" trunk with a bit of movement down low on the trunk, along with a bit of taper and flair also down low...







anyone else doing anything with these ?

Nice Kevin

I haven't tried one yet. I think Pavel's warning about long internodes will be something to keep on top of. Curious where it will bud back this spring.
