Physocarpus opulifolius 'Donna May'

Common Name: Ninebark, Little Devil™

This "cute little devil" will add deep burgundy foliage color to your garden in a compact, easy to grow and maintain shrub. An exciting improvement to ninebark selections, Little Devil™ is great for every garden but especially useful for smaller urban gardens or where low maintenance is desired, as it needs little to no pruning and is free from pest and disease issues. The dark foliage is beautifully offset by button-like white-pink flowers in June. This cute little devil is a trouble-free addition to any home or commercial landscape.
