Eastern Ninebark Seeds

(Physocarpus opulifolius) Zones 2 - 7. Flowering Shrub.

Eastern Nine Bark is a beautiful, and versatile shrub, native to Eastern North America. This plant is often used in restoration projects as it can help mitigate erosion damage and can grow in poor soil. 

Standing alone, as a hedge or along slopes or banks, Eastern Ninebark blooms in late Spring. Once established, cascading branches of spirea-like white flowers will add to your landscape and welcome many beneficial insects to your space.

GROWING INSTRUCTIONS

- Soak Seeds 24 hrs. Follow with 90 days cold, moist stratification. For more information on stratification, check out our article "How To Start Your Tree Seeds".

*If you are doing the cold period in your fridge, please check on your seeds. 90 is an estimate & they may sprout sooner!*

- Plant stratified seeds in pots or a nursery bed using standard potting soil. Heat mats are NOT required & can hinder germination!

- Protect young tree seedlings from slugs, cutworms & rodents. Slugs especially can eat primary leaves as soon as they come up, so be vigilant!
