Why is it good for my garden? Grows well in moist areas and is great for rain gardens. Ninebark’s multi- stemmed nature creates a graceful and arching thicket, perfect for a mixed hedgerow or a natural, wooded area to attract birds and can be a protected refuge for nests. The extensive root system can provide excellent stability for erosion control.
