Description Sowing How to Grow More Info Delivery Reviews Video
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.

Flowering Months
A neat little shrub that works well at the front of mixed borders. With a neat, upright habit it will add a strong splash of colour without taking up too much space. The young leaves emerge bright red and slowly darken to a deep burgundy colour, making a dramatic contrast with darker-leaved neighbouring plants. This tough little deciduous shrub needs little maintenance once established and will prove drought tolerant and very resilient. Height: 45cm (18"). Spread: 25cm (10").
Plant Berberis in full sun or partial shade, on a reliably moist, well-drained soil. Barberry plants are extremely resilient and will grow on many different soil types, except waterlogged.
Berberis require little maintenance once established. Trim back the stems lightly after flowering, removing dead or damaged growth at the same time.
