­Common Ninebark is a native Minnesota shrub. In late spring, it produces pinkish-white flower clusters which give way to red seed capsules. The seed capsules attract birds and persist into winter. Ninebark is named for its peeled bark of red and light brown layers, which provides winter interest. It does well in most soil types and tolerates a wide range of moisture conditions. Full sun to part shade.
