The colouring on this plant is quite remarkable making it one of my favorite garden specimens.
I can remember planting a number of these shrubs in several different yards when they were new on the market about twenty years ago. They have all survived the unpredictable southeastern Alberta climate (and that's no mean feat).
Not shown here but...the name "ninebark" refers to the way the plant sheds thin strips of bark that curl into shapes resembling the number 9.

Only the plant name is a trademark, not the plant itself. That means anyone can take cuttings and grow a new plant...but those new plants can't be called Coppertina®. And that's just fine with me. The cuttings I've grown have been christened "Coperetta..." like an Italian operetta and just as colourful.
