Physocarpus opulifolius 'Monlo'
Diabolo® is a cultivar of ninebark prized for its deep maroon foliage, which contrasts
nicely with the clusters of white flowers produced in the spring and is a great companion
for gold or chartreuse-leaved plants. This deciduous shrub grows from 6' to 10' high
and wide but can be rejuvenated by pruning it to the ground in winter. Red fruit extends
ninebark’s show into the fall and exfoliating bark adds winter interest. Diabolo®
is a hardy and durable shrub that can be used as a screen, for massing, or at the
back of a border.
