Diablo Ninebark. I miss mine! I will have them again someday. Diabolo Ninebark is a plant-it-and-forget-it shrub. Its deep purple foliage (green underneath) looks good from spring through fall and creates great contrast with the shrub's white flowers in early summer. It seldom needs pruning or watering, making it a true garden winner. Name: Physocarpus opulifolius 'Diabolo' Zones: 3-7
