Physocarpus opulifolius: Ninebark Little Devil (‘Donna May’)

Little Devil Ninebark

Thanks to Horticulture magazine for highlighting this upcoming 2011 introduction from Bailey Nurseries. In the words of the magazine, “An exciting improvement in ninebark, First Editions Little Devil resists pests and diseases and requires very little maintenance. It keeps its compact shape without pruning, making it great as a background or in a shrub border. Grows up to 4 feet tall and wide. Full sun or part shade. Zones 3–7.”

Might make a nice substitute for those Crimson Pigmy barberries (invasive and thorny!) that sometimes work so well in the front of a shrub border.
