Ninebark is an American native shrub that grows 6 to 8 feet tall, or even to 12 feet under ideal conditions. It has attractive clusters of fluffy white flowers in early summer, interesting red to tan seed pods all summer, and the rich-green leaves turn golden yellow in fall. It is the perfect all-purpose’ shrub to choose for your garden, as it will thrive in any kind of soil, and even in little pockets of soil over rock, where most plants will quickly fail. Use it for all the difficult spots in your garden, but also plant it as an attractive background plant to other flowering shrubs and plants, as it will always look attractive, but ask for nothing of you. Its graceful arching form adds beauty without adding work, so plant it along an ugly fence or wall, to bring beauty to the most difficult spots in your garden.

  • One of the toughest shrubs you can plant
  • Thrives in difficult locations, in all kinds of soil
  • Beautiful fluffy white flower clusters, followed by red seed pods
  • Hardy to minus 40 degrees and free of pests and diseases
  • Upright arching form is a perfect background or fills awkward corners

Ninebark grows in sun or partial shade, and it is hardy to minus 40, so it will grow anywhere, especially in the coldest regions where plant choices are limited. It will also grow in all soils, from sand to clay, and in rocky, shallow soils that are hard to find plants for. Just plant it and forget it – the ultimate low-maintenance plant for every garden situation – tough but also attractive, and an ideal choice if you are just starting to garden.
