October & November portraits of
Physocarpus opulifolius 'Diablo'
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.
This November shot from 2002 shows
the shrub in complete transformation
from purple-black to chocolatey purple-red.
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.
Read more about this shrub on the
Diablo Ninebark page.
