Planted in a line, Berberis thunbergii f. atropurpurea 'Dart's Red Lady' , makes an attractive and very manageable low hedge, that is ideal for front gardens. It can also be planted as a lone specimen shrub, within a garden border. This Japanese Barberry cultivar was awarded the Award of Garden Merit, by the RHS, and has small dark burgundy coloured leaves, with contrasting pale yellow flowers in spring. In autumn the leaves turn scarlet red before falling. This shrub is popular with pollinating insects, making it a good choice for a wildlife friendly garden. Height: 50cm (19"). Spread: 50cm (19").

Plant height and spread is seasonal therefore we list by pot size rather than a defined plant size. The height and spread of the plant delivered will vary depending on the season, meaning arrival images are an indication only.

Plant Berberis in full sun or partial shade, on a reliably moist, well-drained soil. Barberry plants are extremely resilient and will grow on many different soil types, except waterlogged.
Berberis require little maintenance once established. Trim back the stems lightly after flowering, removing dead or damaged growth at the same time.
