I’m so glad you have Little Devil Ninebarks in your garden! It’s the first full week of November and my ninebark is still holding onto the leaves. One of the many things I like about ninebark is that it drops the leaves later in the fall. Though this video is for hydrangeas, the pruning tips work for ninebarks and will help with growing sturdier stems. Be certain to prune it in early spring. If you have room for another shrub, take a look at Virtual Violet Lilac. Lilac flowers look pretty combined with ninebark’s colorful leaves.
