    Maintenance Notes: 

    With its naturally graceful, arching habit, ninebarks are best left unpruned. Take its relatively large size into account when siting this plant. It makes an especially nice backdrop for other plantings. Plant in full sun for the best looks and performance.

    Fun Facts: 

    The name "ninebark" derives from the peeling mature bark, which makes it look like there are multiple layers of bark on the plant.

    • My gingerwine ninebarks are stunning. I have them planted on the east side of my house and they are very happy there. Our soil is alkaline. Our irrigation (non drinkable) water has high salinity. I keep that water from hitting the leaves of the ninebarks and water them by drip at ground level. Every so often, I give them non-irrigation water. They are beautiful and thriving. They put on a show year round. People frequently ask what they are because they are so beautiful.

      Unsatisfied Did not survive, inferior performance or did not bloom well - won't grow again.
