Colorful, vigorous and easy to grow are words that could best dscribe most Ninebarks. The foliage from spring to fall will put on an incredible show with colors ranging from yellow to orange and purple. Who needs showy flowers when the leaves do all the work by themselves? Plus, the exfoliateing bark adds winter interest.
