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.

  • Another mildew mess. We have so many Physocarpus on the market now that have mildew problems, why are a we adding another?

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