Decorative Dwarf Barberry with Exceptional Foliage

Midnight Ruby is a deciduous shrub with vibrant color and larger foliage than other Barberry plants. Plant one as a garden focal point, or several for a short, brilliant hedge.

Your Midnight Ruby is an adorable small shrub with delightful color to brighten your landscape spring to fall. An exceptional Barberry, your Midnight Ruby boasts larger foliage than other Barberry shrubs, and what impressive foliage it is! The large oval leaves are a deep burgundy that will stand out like a burning bush amid your other plantings, and maintains its warm brilliance all season.

The value of your Midnight Ruby’s enduring color is certainly the most impressive of this little shrub’s appeal, but it has even more to recommend it. In the spring, clusters of tiny, yellow flowers will add diminutive splashes of additional color to your shrub. In the fall, red drupes appear for added decorative appeal. As fall progresses, the leaves will transition from their maroon hues to a vibrant red.

The Midnight Ruby is a multi-stemmed dwarf, so you can easily fit a few into various spaces in your yard where splashes of color are desired. Midnight Ruby’s rounded, compact form is ideal to just plant and forget, but it will also react well to any pruning you choose to perform at any time of the year.

Midnight Ruby is tolerant of moist conditions, drought and many soil types. It will even thrive in urban environments. Under good conditions, you can expect your Midnight Ruby to live twenty years or more. It’s deer resistant, and birds love it.
