Burgundy Leaves Accent Exfoliating Bark

Diabolo Ninebark is deciduous shrub with ornamental features.  These would look wonderful as a mass planting as a screen or hedge in an area where you have difficult soils or need erosion control.  One would also be terrific at the back of your perennial bed.

Your Diabolo Ninebark is prized for its four-season interest.  White, button-like blooms appear in spring, presenting a showy display that’s sure to draw butterflies, hummingbirds and bees to your yard. 

In fall, your Ninebark will further captivate your wildlife when the red capsules that are its fruit ripen.  Winter reveals your shrub’s origins when its exfoliating bark exposes the reddish-brown layers underneath (thus its name of “ninebark”). 

However, even though all of these features are extraordinary, it’s the burgundy leaves Diabolo displays throughout summer that are often its most beloved feature.  The 4-inch long, lobed leaves are an elegant deep purple that’s sure to stand out in your landscape in almost any setting.

Diabolo Ninebark will grow to 10 feet tall with an equal spread but can be pruned to any size.  It’s a fast-growing shrub that’s easy to grow and can tolerant a wide range of soils.  It’s even drought tolerant.  It does best in full sun but can do well in some shade. 

Four-season interest on a hardy shrub with outstanding color--Diabolo Ninebark is a must have for your yard this year!

Hardy Review by Carl
My nine bark has been such a great plant to care for, and it tends to survive, even when neglected! This is a hardy plant that changes every season.
Hedge Review by Bill
8 years ago I planted a row of 8 Diablos in my backyard. They have developed into a great hedge. I also planted a row of ornamental grasses in front of them. The affect has been quite successful. I found with gardening one needs patience because it takes time to get the look you want.
Great burgundy foliage when mixed with fall flowers! Review by Ericka Bradbury
This shrub brags a deep burgundy colored foliage that makes a great focal point throughout the season. It's a great hardy burgundy centerpiece when accompanied with the color contrasts of fall bloomers such as the bright golden blooms of Rudbeckia Goldsturm, fall mums, and ornamental grasses.
Great plant! Review by alipp
I have this shrub in my front garden. I love it! It is a show stopper in early summer when it is covered in white blooms. The contrast of the white flowers with the deep burgundy foliage is stunning. In mid to late summer the flowers are replaced with red seed pods that are almost as beautiful. My Ninebark thrives with very little care. I would recommend this to anyone who wants a carefree, yet beautiful bush.
Great New Plant for Me! Review by Giggles
I happened upon this plant last year and planted three of them together. They are really nice all year round. Great dark color with the white flowers in summer.
