Description
Berberis thunbergii f. atropurpurea 'Harlequin' is a particularly recognisable RHS AGM variety with distinctive purple leaves marbled with rose-pink. Although mainly grown for its foliage, the pale lemon flowers make a pleasing contrast in spring, followed by bright red berries from late summer. The colourful leaves take on brighter tones of red during the autumn months, before falling to reveal prickly, arching stems. A superb ornamental shrub for adding colour accents to borders. Barberry plants also make colourful hedges and attract wildlife to their flowers and berries. Height: 120cm (48"). Spread: 150cm (59").

Plant height and spread is seasonal therefore we list by pot size rather than a defined plant size. The height and spread of the plant delivered will vary depending on the season, meaning arrival images are an indication only.

How to Grow

More Info
