Physocarpus ‘Darts Gold’ is a medium-sized, compact, mounded deciduous shrub with exfoliating bark on mature branches, and ovate, three-lobed, bright golden-yellow leaves when young, lime-green when mature, yellow-bronze in autumn. Small, pink-tinted, creamy-white flowers in dense, flat, rounded clusters bloom in late spring and early summer and are followed by reddish fruit. Physocarpus ‘Darts Gold’ prefers average, dry to medium moisture, slightly acidic, well-drained soil, in full sun or partial shade, but can tolerate a wide range of soils. Doesn’t like hot and humid climates. If planted in chalky soil, susceptible to chlorosis. Very resilient, can grow in harsh conditions. It is very tolerant of urban pollution, therefore, suitable for growing in cities. Generally, pest-free and disease-free. Low maintenance plant, doesn’t require much pruning. Physocarpus ‘Darts Gold’ is best used for mass planting in shrub borders and wall-side borders, or for hedges and screens. Great for erosion control on banks and slopes.

About Us

During this time, we have developed a large stock of trees, mature evergreen shrubs, conifers, Japanese maples, cedars and olives. What sets us apart from a generic garden center is solid unwavering focus on trees and some bigger shrubs. You will find thousands of trees, hundreds of varieties and lots of experts who are working on the nursery and more than willing to help you to choose a plant for you.

What you will not find is hot tubs, garden furniture and plastic garden gnomes. In a nutshell, trees is what we know and trees is what we do, and only trees (and some shrubs to go with the trees).
