Brilliant Color and Refined Foliage

Ninebark are one of the easiest, most hardy decorative shrubs to grow. However up until now they have required significant space in the yard. If you thought you couldn't own a lovely Ninebark, think again. Little Devil Ninebark is a dwarf variety that improves upon all the others. Smaller, and far more adorable than other ninebarks, Little Devilprovides enhanced ornamental features while requiring less space.

It's impossible to say too much about this gorgeous shrub. Its glossy, red-purple foliage screams out for attention in any setting. Little Devil's interior leaves tend more toward green, with red stems adding to the decorative appeal. In early summer, tiny white flowers appear, each with the slightest, subtle kiss of a pink hue. Reddish fruit arrives in fall. As your Little Devil matures, its exfoliating bark lives up to its "ninebark" name for even more color variation in your landscape.

Little Devil Ninebark has a upright, rounded form and is easy to maintain. Little Devil is adaptive to a variety of soils as well as being disease, pest and mildew resistant. It's an excellent substitute for the beloved burgundy shades of barberry if you're in an area of the country where barberry are invasive. Little Devil Ninebark is long lived, and will provide you with superb service for up to 30 years in ideal conditions.

The refined foliage of Little Devil Ninebark sets it apart in any landscape, but consider its small stature, remarkable color and easy care and you can see why this would be the perfect choice for your home this summer.

  • Summer flowers
  • Pest & disease resistant
  • Adaptive to a variety of soils
