October & November portraits of
Physocarpus opulifolius 'Diablo'

   

Autumn color

   

The leaves of this 'Monlo' aka 'Diablo' Ninebark
are so purple in summer they are almost black,
then in autumn fade to purply-red,
as shown in this late-October 2003 photo.


Autumn color


This November shot from 2002 shows
the shrub in complete transformation
from purple-black to chocolatey purple-red.


Seed pods in autumn


Toward the end of November (as in this 2003 photo),
autumn leaves are vanishing, leaving a twiggy presence
with exfoliating bark. The seed pods often linger
on the branches after leaf-fall, feeding birds.
The seeds begin bright red (after white flowering),
ripen to deep burgundy by summer's end,
then are black-burgundy in autumn & early winter.
