Red Barberry Loves Sun

The Barberry bush or Red Leaf Japanese bush, Berberis thunbergii, is a deciduous shrub that can reach 4'-6' with an equal spread. It can be trimmed to any size and shape. 

The branches are slender, spiny, and small, and the leaves are roundly oval in a deep red to purple color.

The small, yellow flowers borne beneath leaves, from April to May, are not showy.

Bright red berries can be found along stems from late fall through winter. Birds and wildlife love them

Barberry bushes are best located in full sun, but will grow in partial sun.

This plant is tolerant of many types of soil, but will not do well in wet to very moist soils.

As name Barberry implies, this makes an excellent hedge or filler shrub.
