This compact little Barberry is perfect for adding a splash of colour to rockeries, gravel gardens and mixed shrub borders. Berberis thunbergii 'Lutin Rouge' has a neat, upright habit that works well towards the front of the border. New spring growth emerges scarlet and matures to a rich claret colour as summer progresses. This hardy, drought tolerant, deciduous shrub needs virtually no maintenance once established. Perfect for providing a dramatic colour contrast with dark green or purple-leaved plants. Height: 45cm (18"). Spread: 25cm (10").

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
Berberis require little maintenance once established. Trim back the stems lightly after flowering, removing dead or damaged growth at the same time.
