Flowering Diablo Ninebark Shrubs-Physocarpus opulifolius photos

Welcome to Macro Flowers Saturday #58!

I have an interesting spirea flower to share today. I've never seen such a hairy spirea flower before. With its many, very long stamens, the flowers look like some delicate brush.
Though I tried to identify it, I couldn't find out what kind of spirea this is.

I just found out that this is a Diablo Ninebark Shrubs - Physocarpus opulifolius.

I've found this flowering spirea shrub on the roadside, squeezed between some others shrubs.
It was about 1.8m tall but its spread was not visible.

If someone knows its name, please share it with us, here on Macro Flowers Saturday.

Have a beautiful weekend!
So, this is not a spirea but a Diablo Ninebark Shrubs (Physocarpus opulifolius). What a name!?
Stan's wife was able to identify it and I checked, it's true. Thank you Stan and Mrs. Stan.

Thank you, thank you, thank you!! Spirea -- just shot a bunch and have not uploaded them to my computer. After seeing your wonderful shots, I'm not sure I want to -- lol. Anyway, beautifully done-- they are quite remarkable.

what´s wrong with the backlink? It is working perfectly.

NatureFootstep said...

there was nothing wrong with the backlink! You removed my entry. Goodby!

Maia T said...

Yes Footstep, this week was better than last week. At least you linked to a post page but you are right, it was working.

Joanne Olivieri said...

The spirea is just so sweet and lovely. What fantastic details. Beautiful post.

Judy said...

I love the ant in the second photo! It gives perspective to the flowers! They are so tiny!!!

Rajesh said...

Very beautiful.

A beautiful spirea Maia and your macros are fabulous. It dose seem a lot hairier than the ones I've seen. Maybe someone will know the name.

NatureFootstep said...

you remove a perfectly working link?? It is obvious you don´t want participants. I always set the link to the actual post in question. If I want to go back I find the post emediately and don´t have to look for it among 20 posts labeled "macro". Well, you lost me for one.

Rosie Gan said...

Dear Maia...your photos inspire me. Am going to get serious about macros.
Have a great weekend.

Maia T said...

I got that the first time N.Footstep.
Yes I know that you always do that, you and a few others that are more special than the rest of participants. I especially asked you not to do it in the note at the end of the post.
I don't need to give an account each week of how I am organizing my blog but here it is:
there is a "Link to this post" option at the end of each post in the original Blogger template which can be disabled from the blog settings. Mine is deleted even from the template, that should tell you something. There is a very good SEO reason for doing this but I don't expect you to understand it.
Often there are even standalone image URL-s entered in the list, instead of blog entries.
Bottom line, I welcome each participant, better said, friends, under my terms, not by quantity. Nobody is forced to participate.
Chapter closed!

Nancy said...

I'm not sure what the exact name is of this spirea -- but I believe it is an older variety. So pretty!

Glad to have found your blog. Beautiful photographs. :)

Maia T said...

Thank you Stan, I checked and your wife is right. Thank you Mrs. Stan.
