    Maintenance Notes:

    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.

      Outstanding My favorite plant, I recommend to others all the time and explain the reasons why I like it so much.

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