Barberry - Crimson Pygmy
A Small Shrub With A Huge Punch of Color!
The Crimson Pygmy is a small shrub that packs huge color in any landscape. Like the ‘Concorde,’ Crimson Pygmy is naturally small in stature, just about two feet tall and perhaps three feet wide.
It has all of the characteristics you love in a landscape shrub: resistance to disease, deer and insects, and perhaps best of all, no pruning, unless you want to treat it as a topiary or downsize it.
Excellent in the landscape border, in Japanese-themed gardens or as a frame for water features. Plant Crimson Pygmy against golds, yellows and deep greens for stark contrast, or as a companion to anything in the pink/rose spectrum for sheer beauty.
Full sun, regular watering and soil that’s a bit on the acid side will serve this shrub well. After its root system is large and well established, it will only need watering during periods of drought.
