About This Species
Pacific ninebark is a native shrub growing to 4 m tall. Pacific ninebark is named after its shedding, textured bark that makes it look like it has 9 layers of bark. In the spring, small green leaves and bunches of white flowers appear. In the fall, its foliage turns yellow and drops, exposing its attractive bark. It is tolerant to a wide range of conditions from drought to occasional flooding.
When selecting non-invasive plants for your garden, be sure to look for those that are suitable for your location, including moisture requirements, hardiness zone, and avoidance of known bear attractants among other factors.
