[gardening] Diabolo ninebark

My two ninebark "Diabolo" bushes are in bloom:

I love the round clusters of flowers that this shrub produces. I pruned the bushes this spring- removing dead and crossing branches and one-third of the old growth. I love how dark the foliage is. I've planted some coleus around the bottom of this small bed for annual interest but also added a couple perennials this year: astilbe and heuchera.

Found a pretty little moth on a cluster:
