Panther® Ninebark Growing and Maintenance Tips

Compact habit makes it an excellent choice for foundation or shrub border plantings. Ninebark grows best in a well-drained, fertile soil, however, they are very hardy and adaptable and will tolerate a wide range of soil types and conditions. Prune by thinning at the base to reduce mildew and full renewal by pruning down to ground in late winter.
