Physocarpus opulifolius ‘Diabolo’
Diablo ninebark shrubs reach 8-10 feet tall with a similar
spread. These multi-branched, upright shrubs are fast
growers. In spring, they bear white or pinkish-white flowers
that grow in clusters. The purplish foliage of Diablo ninebark
plants (with a touch of red here and there) earn them the
nickname, "purple ninebarks" or purple-leafed ninebarks."
An increase in red color and a hint of bronze added to the
purple in the leaves make them even more attractive in fall.
Mature branches exhibit exfoliating bark, making Diablo
ninebark plants useful for injecting visual interest into your
landscaping for winter.Extremely cold hardy plant. Grows
best in zones 2-7.
