Buy Berberis thunbergii f. atropurpurea purple Japanese barberry: Outstanding autumn colour

This shrub is deciduous so it will lose all its leaves in autumn, then fresh new foliage appears again each spring.

  • Position: full sun or partial shade
  • Soil: well-drained soil
  • Rate of growth: slow to average
  • Flowering period: April to May
  • Hardiness: fully hardy

    Red-tinted, pale yellow flowers in mid-spring, followed by glossy, red autumn fruit, and dark rich purple leaves which turn a brilliant shade of red in autumn. This rounded, deciduous shrub makes a great informal hedge or specimen plant for a well-drained, sunny or partly shady site.

  • Garden care: Requires minimal pruning. Where some pruning is required, cut back in autumn or winter, after the appearance of the autumn fruits.
