  • Vibrant Spring and Fall Color
  • Attracts Butterflies
  • Hardy

The Barberry Orange Rocket is an ornamental shrub valued for its spring and fall color. One would look terrific in your flower garden or as container plants on your patio or front porch for a unique burst of color.

You'll be amazed with all that this little shrub has to offer. It leaps into spring with a blaze of coral-orange color when the leaves first appear. You won't notice the dainty yellow flowers or tiny red berries that follow, but the butterflies and songbirds will. You'll enjoy watching as they flit in and out of your garden to visit your Barberry, adding their cheery demeanor to your peaceful haven.

The Barberry's vivid leaves gradually merge into a vibrant green for summer, preparing for the show to come. When fall arrives, your Barberry will again amaze you with its transformation back into reds and oranges that are so intense they seem ablaze in your landscape.

This Barberry grows in a columnar shape so it's easy to squeeze into almost any landscape space you have. It's a vigorous plant and quite hardy, so you won't have to fuss over it. It's even deer resistant.

The Barberry Orange Rocket is a colorful ornamental that delivers a lot for its small size. Plant one today and it will bring you joy for years to come.
