Ninebark is a large shrub with dark green or reddish leaves that form an arching, cascading habit. The leaves are 3 to 4 inches long, with a lobed structure that resembles that of Viburnum. Ninebark flowers in late spring with clusters of white or pink blooms, and it has red fruit that provides fall interest as well as food for birds. This shrub is related to spirea and has similar clusters (umbels) of flowers that develop into red inflated fruit (follicles) in the fall.
12-18 inches tall
