Little Devil Ninebark

Physocarpus opulifolius 'Donna May' PP22,634

Little Devil Ninebark in First Editions container

Little Devil Ninebark impresses with its upright spreading habit and fine-textured, dark foliage that sets it apart from another ninebark. Mildew resistant and low maintenance, Little Devil also requires little to no pruning. Additionally, it is free from pest and disease issues and adapts well to wet or dry soil. Clusters of small purplish-white flowers bloom in June that contrast nicely with the burgundy foliage. Little Devil is a good substitute for barberry in areas of the country where barberry is invasive.
