The diablo is a larger ninebark, so it can be grown by training a central leader like this. It's not grafted. Just a bit of trimming every now and then is all it takes. Perhaps your nursery or plant supplier can find you one. They are awesome.

I like the idea of turning a shrub into tree form and thus getting a small tree. Thank you!

Planting notes. Choosing the proper cultivar and form for your garden space is of primary importance. Most ninebarks, with the exception of 'Little Devil,' can become quite large, which promotes their use as hedge and back-of-the-border plants. If necessary, they may be pruned severely in late winter or early spring before new growth begins. Several cultivars are now being grown into patio trees, such as this 'Diablo'. This standard form makes a great addition for smaller courtyard gardens or as focal points in mixed beds.For best foliage color, plant ninebarks in full sun. They are quite adaptable to a variety of soil conditions. My experience has been that they need to be watered quite frequently for several weeks after planting. After they become established, however, they are basically care-free. This bit of extra care on the front end will allow the ninebark to reward you richly for years to come.
