Tips For Care

Festivus will perform best in full sun with the best color and the cleanest foliage. If grown in part shade the foliage color may be more green than yellow. Average water and soil needs, any well-drained medium works!

Mulch the roots for insulation from cold zones 3-7, and retain moisture. Blooming on old wood, prune after flowering if light shaping is needed, but it is best to avoid any kind of regular pruning of Ninebark. Renewal pruning is suggested for older plants by removing the oldest, thickest stems out to the ground leaving the younger and thinner stems in place for the best natural form and flowering.

Add this brilliant and drought-tolerant shrub this year for bright tomorrows!
