'Darts Gold' Ninebark

(Physocarpus opulifolius)

The leaves start out yellow, turn chartreuse by mid-summer, then become yellow or bronze in fall—at every stage, a nice contrast to other plants. The branches are bare in winter, then you notice the peeling bark typical of all ninebarks. White flowers.

Zone: 1 or 2; Hardy to –40 degrees F

Height: up to 5 feet.
