'Berberis 'Orange Rocket' has a columnar, upright habit, and leaves which change from orange, through to shades of plum and purple. Fantastic summer and autumn colours. The spring flowers are yellow and emit a gentle honey fragrance.
The prickly nature of Berberis plants make them excellent for security planting around your property. Plants can be grown as an upright specimen plant or trained as a hedge, are easy to maintain and trim, and are suitable for exposed positions. Height: 1.5m (4.9'). Spread: 50cm (19").More info
Sambucus racemosa 'Sutherland Gold' (Large Plant)
European Red Elder
Sambucus racemosa 'Sutherland Gold' is an easy to grow shrub for any garden. The foliage is fancy; appearing in bright golden colours and with a delightful feathering. Plants are good-shaped and are easy to care for and prune.
Even in full sun, the foliage of this striking Elder will look luminous and healthy, resisting sun-scorch surprisingly well. Later in summer, plants will produce frothy white flowers and elder berries. Plants will last for many years in the garden, and make a good hedging plant too. Height and spread: 2.5m (8.2').More info
