rabbit preferences for winter food

Many of you know that I put in a new hedgerow last spring. Well, the rabbits really did a job on it over the iwnter. I have to report that rabbits adore the twigs of grey dogwood, serviceberry, chokeberry, witchhazel, and american hazelnut, but they don't eat ninebark. I now have a mulched strip with fifteen ninebarks (in three neat groupings) and very little else. Lots of tiny twigs with one or two leaves on them, but a whole year's growth gone. We're going to dig up suckers throughout the miniwoodland this weekend and replace as much as we can.
