History

The common name of Ninebark comes from the appearance of the bark which is peels away in layers. Native to North America. The inner bark was brewed into a pain reliever and remedy for many other maladies by Native American tribes within this plant's range. Roots were sometimes steam cooked and eaten and plants were used as charms to cause bad luck.

Customer Reviews

Simply stunning feature shrub
by East Coastal Gardener, May 29, 2017

I discovered two nine barks of this variety languishing in the garden of a home I purchased, and relocated them to a spot with full sun. They grew almost three feet in two seasons, putting in a spectacular display of blooms starting in early May.
