summer wine ninebark
I just planted this shrub. Now I have read on some sites that it is poisonous if ingested. I do have animals and there are children in the area. So I am wondering if it is poisonous and if so how poisonous, and for example what amount would be poisonous. I am wondering if I should remove it or not. It is in my front yard. Thank you so much.

The USDA does not list it as poisonous nor does the ASPCA.
A tea from the leaves, berries or bark is a purgative (something that causes diarrhea).
