Centerglow Ninebark

kathym(z5MI)June 29, 2010

Does this shrub really reach 8-10 feet as the nursery tags state? I would like a rather fast growing shrub to block a view. I was speaking to an employee at a nursery and she said her diablo ninebark doesn't reach 8 feet in height (nursery tags have 6-8 feet in height for that variety). What are the downsides to this shrub? Is it particular about what kind of soil it's planted in? My yard consists of sandy soil.

Thank you for reporting this comment. Undo

I think the ninebark would do fine in sandy soil, but I think the height will be closer to 8 feet than 10.
