Description How to Grow More Info Delivery

Berberis 'Orange Rocket' produces leaves which become deeper in colour as summer progresses into autumn; from a rich orange maturing to lovely shades of plum and purple. Small yellow flowers appear in spring, emitting a subtle honey fragrance. This handy ornamental shrub has a columnar, upright habit and requires little maintenance or trimming.

These plants can be trained as a hedge or grown as an upright specimen plant; their prickly nature means that they are an ideal choice for a secure property boundary. Berberis 'Orange Rocket' is a versatile shrub that lends itself to a variety of soils and positions, particularly tricky, exposed locations. Height: 1.5m (4.9'). Spread: 50cm (19").

Flowering Months
Feed and water regularly throughout the growing season while young berberis plants become established. Mature barberry bushes require only occasional pruning to tidy old or misplaced stems. When pruning berberis plants remove only a quarter of the oldest shoots back to the base of the plant immediately after flowering.
Plant barberry shrubs in borders in any moist, well drained soil in full sun or semi shade. Grow berberis plants in a sunny position for the best fruits and flowers.
