Physocarpus ‘Lady in Red’ is grown for its bright red, serrated foliage, which makes the perfect foil for colourful flowers, both in the garden and the vase. Clusters of pink-white flowers in summer, followed by red autumn berries, complete the look. When plants reach maturity the bark peels away in layers. It’s ideal for growing in a mixed herbaceous border and looks fantastic when grown alongside lime-green coloured plants.
