Berberis thunbergii ‘Orange Rocket’
Out of stock
Barberries are known for their compact, structured form ranging from bright yellow to deep burgundy foliage colors. They have spines along their reddish stems that allows it to keep a strong, attractive form through all four seasons. This cultivar has a compact, upright form with lighter orange-red leaves transitioning to green in the summer and finally to a darker red color in the fall. This selection is a slow grower. Barberries prefer moderately dry, well-drained soil; while they suffer in poorly drained, wet soil. They tolerate heavy heat and drought situations as well as a heavily shaded area. Typically used for border and hedge plantings.
