I like this shrub, but its very dark when not in flower. I could handle that if only the flowers were red, not pale pink! Oh well ...I dare say the breeders are working on it somewhere! :)

Beautiful. I like the pink contrast with dark leaves, I have mine planted next to Philadelphus coronarius 'Aureus' for contrast. I have Physocarpus opulifolius 'Dart's Gold' too but didnt realise there were so many different ones.

I haven't seen the rusty one Angela one to look out for , I had 'Darts Gold ' Dawn but each year it turned brown whenever we had a frost I'm afraid it had to go :o(

This is lovely, I have one that's about 3 foot tall in a large pot. I'm planning the best spot to plant it in the ground. How old are yours and how big do they get? The tag said 1.5metres height and spread but various online sources state the same bar a couple that have said it gets bigger. I dont want to plant it and then have to move it once it outgrows it's space. Planning on putting alongside my syringa josee and hydrangea. :)
