The Diabolo® Ninebark grows quickly into an upright, arching bush between 4 and 8 feet tall and wide. This deciduous shrub has bright red leaves in spring, maroon red leaves in summer, and copper red leaves in fall. In late spring to early summer the branches are festoons with clusters of pinkish-white flowers, which make a beautiful contrast against the dark foliage. In fall and winter clusters of red seed pods decorate the branches. Grow this tough plant wherever you need color contrast, and a reliable, hardy, low-maintenance plant.

  • Rich red leaves from spring to fall
  • Attractive arching growth
  • Beautiful contrast with pink-white flowers
  • Red seed pods in fall and winter
  • Extremely cold hardy and very easy to grow

Full sun will keep the leaf colors of the Diabolo® Ninebark at their brightest. Colors are strongest in cooler regions, and this plant is completely winter hardy even in zone 3. It grows well in difficult soils, from gravels to clays, and in urban soils too. An indestructible plant for the toughest spots, and yet beautiful and always attractive, this plant is not bothered by pests or diseases and it needs no regular maintenance. Remove a few of the oldest stems from older plants in spring, to rejuvenate it and encourage the best growth.
