Tiny Wine® gold ninebark was named for its foliage, which emerges in new growth in vivid yellows and golds. This shrub features exfoliating bark and white and pink flower clusters that bloom in late spring. This cultivar prefers moderate soil in full sun and is useful as an accent plant. Ninebark shrubs serve as a larval host for several moth species, and their nectar is harvested by bees and butterflies.
