Ninebark is a low-maintenance deciduous plant which is available in several varieties offering different leaf colour and habit. MIDNIGHT is a trade name for a novelty variety called Jonight which was introduced in 2013. It was selected by John Jones from a small English nursery Hyfryd Plants.

MIDNIGHT is possibly the darkest ninebark variety known to date, producing deciduous, shallowly lobed to almost serrated maple-like leaves of very dark burgundy red, almost black leaves. Such dramatic foliage looks best in contrast with yellow and rich green leaves around. In late spring appear numerous small corymbs of light red buds opening to almost white, melliferous flowers, soon followed by dark red fruit that lasts for several months. In autumn another attractive feature which gave this plant its name ninebark becomes visible: peeling bark on older stems. It looks especially attractive on a sunny winter day against a layer of fresh snow on the ground.

Ninebarks are so easy to grow. They take any soil, pH and location. The root system is so sturdy it can easily grow through heavy clay that will provide nutrients for a fantastic plant. Little Devil™ will look great grown next to other broadleaved plants with yellow or bright green foliage to provide the best contrast. Location in full sun will make the leaf colour deep. Pruning is not necessary as it branches well but you can cut it in any manner from late winter until early summer. Fully hardy to about -40°C (USDA zone 3) and suitable for outdoor pots.
