This hardy deciduous shrub makes a fine addition to borders, creating a distinctive colour contrast among green leaved specimens. Berberis are renowned for being easy to grow and resilient – and this one is no exception! Height: 90cm (36"). Spread:120cm (48").

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.
