Ninebark is an easy to grow, low maintenance native with serious curb appeal. In spring the multi-edged leaves of ninebark emerge from ornamental peeling bark and quickly cover the plant in shades of copper, orange, green, and gold. Soon after small clusters of pink flowers begin to form and emerge over the course of a 2 to 3 week period. Pollinators will flock to these flowers with bees, beetles, and butterflies all visiting ninebark numerous times through the day. For those who are searching for a beneficial plant that is easy to grow, attractive, and great for native pollinators this ninebark is a great choice.

Caring for Ninebark Coppertina®
A great low-maintenance native plant that pollinators love in sunny spaces. Prefers medium, well-drained soil, but is adaptable to many soil types and will tolerate dry conditions once established.. Trim to shape in the fall, but otherwise requires very little to no maintenance. A cross between Dart's Gold and Diabolo that flushes an attractive copper in spring and transforms to a rich red in summer. Soft pink flowers line the gently arching branches in early summer. This durable, cold-hardy plant does well in exposed sites. It was selected as the 2011 Cut Flower of the Year by the ASCFG.
