Ninebark is an impressive native perennial with lots to offer the landscape and this variety is no exception! Sweet Cherry Tea starts out with cherry red leaves that darken to deep purple as they mature. Next, deep rosy pink buds appear and open into pale blush pink bloom clusters which contrast beautifully with the midnight dark foliage. After the foliage passes charming red fruit takes its place at the end of spring. Best of all, the beautiful show comes with an encore! Expect another flush of pink blooms in midsummer. This stunner is more than just lovely to behold - it is also quite tough and versatile, tolerating a wide range of soil types and and harsh climates. Use this long lived perennial in mixed borders, urban gardens, as specimens and in naturalized gardens. There's virtually no wrong way to grow and appreciate this multi-talented plant!
