Berberis thunbergii f. atropurpurea (Large Plant)

Japanese Barberry

Hardy Shrub

This popular Japanese Barberry is well loved for its colourful purple foliage that turns to bright red in autumn. Berberis thunbergii f. atropurpurea bears its yellow blooms in spring along the length of each branch, which are loved by pollinating insects. Bright red berries follow the flowers, providing a rich source of food for wild birds. This hardy, resilient shrub has a dense, rounded habit that makes a good specimen shrub for borders and wildlife areas, or planted as a spiny hedge. Height: 100cm (40"). Spread: 250cm (98").

To keep hedges in good shape, trim back lightly after flowering each year. You should also remove dead, diseased or damaged growth. Caution: irritant to skin and eyes, harmful if eaten.
