Physocarpus opulifolius Chameleon


I have mentioned Physocarpus in a previous blog. Since then, “Midnight” has become a top seller both in The UK and Europe.

Physocarpus are still very popular in Garden Centres and there are many similar forms on the market so it was a treat to find “Chameleon” which is a real colour break. 

The foliage in spring has a warm wine red glow in the centre with irregular yellow variegated margins. As the season progresses the Red centre turns purple.

Chameleon has a compact bushy habit which, together with its amazing coloured foliage, makes an ideal plant on any sales area.

In the garden situation it will grow around 1 metre high and same diameter.


The first plants ready and available for dispatch from late May 2013 to both Retailers and Wholesale growers, priced at £1.20 each (£24.00 per tray of 20) inclusive of royalty & colour label.
