Berberis thunbergii 'Rose Glow' (Barberry) Details

“Rose Glow” is a small, deciduous shrub treasured for its impressively coloured foliage. New leaves in spring are purple and irregularly marbled with pink and white. They age to purple, then take on red and orange tones in autumn before falling. Tiny, cream-white flowers are borne in early spring with the emerging foliage and result in small, red berries in summer which often attract birds. It grows densely to about 1 m tall and 1.5 m wide, preferring a well-drained site and a full sun position. Plants will tolerate frost, cool climates, partial shade, coastal conditions, and most growing conditions, except extreme wet or dry. “Rose Glow” is commonly trimmed into a hedge or added to a mixed planting. The thorns make it ideal for blocking thoroughfares and trimmed plants will form a dense, impenetrable, yet attractive hedge. For hedging space plants 50 cm apart.
