Interesting Notes about Ninebark:

Just within the last 20 years what used to be a rather unexciting, tough and durable shrub, is now growing in popularity as an ornamental feature in the landscape. New cultivars have been introduced that keep the tough aspects and improve the beauty and function. The shrub has now become a 4-season plant with colorful leaves and flowers, fruit, exfoliating bark and structured form and habit.
