This exciting improvement in ninebark has an upright spreading habit and fine textured, dark foliage that sets it apart from other ninebark. It is also mildew resistant, so it doesn't turn into a powdery white eyesore in your garden or shrub border. Clusters of small purplish-white flowers in June contrast nicely with the burgundy foliage. This low maintenance plant adapts to wet or dry soil. Little Devil ninebark is a good substitution for barberry in areas of the country where barberry may be invasive.
