Care Thrives in average, slightly acidic, well-drained soils, but very adaptable. Best color in full sun; avoid extreme heat and humidity. Water deeply, regularly during first growing season to establish an extensive root system; once established, reduce frequency. Fertilize in spring. Blooms on old wood; prune after flowering to maintain shape.
HISTORY
Lore 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.
