Pacific Ninebark - bare root
This large, spreading shrub grows rapidly to 12,' with small, maple-like leaves and thin, shreddy bark. Some say there are nine layers of bark, leading to the name. Small white flowers unfurl in a dense cluster of 3-5," like ready-made corsages for a summer gala. In fall the leaves turn vivid shaded of red and orange.
