Product Information

Rarely available to UK gardeners, the Japanese Burberry 'Berber' is a gorgeous and versatile shrub that grows in a loose upright form and makes a perfect low-maintenance hedge or edging or can be added to a border or used as a specimen plant in a container.

A prickly, low growing deciduous shrub, this berberis is particularly noted for its bright golden foliage that, unlike many other golden varieties, will not scorch in the sun so is ideal for a sunny spot. A feature plant throughout the year, as the seasons change so does the foliage. Creating a simply stunning and eye-catching display.

In this collection you will receive:

  • Berberis 'Harlequin' - a compact shrub that will bring vibrant colour to beds and borders, with its dark purple-red leaves, splashed with cream and pink.
  • Berberis 'Golden Pillar' - is a beautiful spectacle with its orange-red new growth that matures to vivid golden green.
  • Berberis thunbergia 'Golden Ruby' - striking coral red foliage that develops a beautiful golden edge as they mature, turning bright yellow in the autumn.

Berberis are completely hardy, drought tolerant and easy to grow and care for. Although they don't require much pruning, they can be trimmed after flowering in spring. It will also respond well to being clipped to shape for hedging.

Supplied as 3 x established plant in 9 cm pots, ready to plant out.

Top Tips

  • Grow in sun or partial shade for the best leaf colour, as too much shade will turn the leaves green.

Care Information

  • Winter hardy and low maintenance, berberis prefers well-drained soil in full sun or semi-shade - if planting in full sun, keep the plant well-watered.
  • To plant, firstly water your potted plant well.
  • Dig a hole a little deeper and 3 x wider than the nursery pot.
  • Add a soil conditioner such as well-rotted manure to the earth removed from the hole if necessary.
  • Remove the plant from its pot and tease out a few of the roots.
  • Place your plant in the hole at the same level at the pot then refill the hole with the earth removed (backfilling).
  • Firm in the soil with your heel, avoiding the root ball and water well before adding a mulch around the base of the plant.
  • Keep plants well-watered, especially if grown in a pot, and feed with our specialist shrub feed.
  • Pruning is minimal, with a light trim after flowering, and any damaged or misplaced branches can be removed in autumn.
