Physocarpus Amber Jubilee ?Jefam?? is a new opulifolius variety,? a seedling cross of ?Diabolo? x ?Darts Gold?, selected by Rick Durand and Wilbert Ronald of Jeffries Nurseries, Canada. The foliage is a kaleidoscopic blend of colours and the new growth takes on shades of yellow and orange before maturing to lime-green and turning purple in autumn. John Woods Nurseries is the only UK licensed grower.
This plant was named in honour of the Queens visit to Manitoba, Canada in July 2010. This fully hardy plant is best in full sun. It is easy to care for and can be trimmed to shape in spring which will also improve foliage colour.
