Amber Jubilee – Fantastic Foliage

Our ‘amber jubilee’ has been in the garden for about a year now.  It’s doing great – growing with beautiful color.  Happy & healthy.  I was exited at finding this plant last year and adding to our collection of ninebarks.  We have 6 varieties now.

Usually our ninebarks are at high risk of becoming deer food but things have changed around here.  We have added an 85 lb deer repellant named Bailey to our family.  He has a very menacing bark and has chased a deer out of the yard several times so far.  If he sees a deer from the window – he jumps up on the glass and barks loudly. It’s great – he chases them away from in the house.  Go Bailey!

This elegant little (for now) shrub gets bright light all day and only partial sun.  It could probably take more sun than it gets but this is where we wanted it in the landscape.

I have written other posts about ninebarks.
