Physocarpus opulifolius Little Devil™ Little Devil Common Ninebark

by Mackey's Farm
The genus of Physocarpus contains some of the easiest to grow shrubs you can put in your landscape. They are nearly carefree, with colorful foliage, great bloom and tolerance for almost any poor, rocky, dry soil you can send their way. Unfortunately, they have always been big plants that take up a lot or room, room that is, many times, hard to find in smaller suburban landscapes. Little Devil™ changes all of that with a tight, rounded, compact form and size that gives you all those great Physocarpus traits in miniature. Little Devil™ loses none of the hardiness of its bigger relatives and possibly even enhances its colorful foliage trait with dark red to maroon foliage that holds its great hue spting through fall. It is also a strong bloomer small pink to white blooms that arrange themselves in small, circular domes of color along its many stems in late May through mid June. Grow Little Devil™ in a sunny location with well drained soil and get ready to enjoy the show, even in small landscape spots!
