    Maintenance Notes: 

    Adaptable to most soils. Prune after blooming, only if needed; ninebarks look best when not regularly pruned.

    A new dwarf ninebark that is smaller than others in the market.

    Tiny Wine is extra bushy, with small, refined leaves. The dark bronze-maroon foliage is colorful all season, and contrasts beautifully with the white flowers in late spring. The flower show is exceptional, with dainty flowers blooming up and down the stem in a very showy display. This durable plant may be used in the landscape for season-long color, and is also a great choice for patio containers.

    • I got two of these last spring for my stock tank containers by our barn entrance. Planted with a gold evergreen, hot pink geraniums, and trailing pink petunias and black sweet potato vine, it was an outstanding display. The tiny wine thrived, was colorful for three seasons and made it through freezing weather and snow without skipping a beat. It grew so well that I decided to move both of my tiny wines to a mixed border that I was designing in the yard. Both plants are thriving and filling in among the perennials and mixed shrubs beautifully. I like these so well that I'm considering a redesign is some other areas so I can include these beauties.

    • Beautiful, compact little shrub. Love its color and flowers. Outstanding growth in this first year in a hot, dry summer. Planted spring of 2016. Looking for more places to plant this beauty.
