Berberis can be a useful ornamental shrub for a range of sites and soils in the garden. '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").

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.
