Special Attributes

A year round color factory, Royal Burgundy is a unique and interesting dwarf barberry raved about for it's rich burgundy leaves in spring that mature to a deep reddish-black as the season progresses. Pale yellow flowers are produced in spring along the reddish-purple stems. Glossy bright red berries appear in fall lasting in to winter. Royal Burgundy is excellent for use around the home or just about anywhere in the landscape where a contrast of color is desired. 



Landscape & Garden Uses

Growing to 2 feet tall and 3 feet wide, Royal Burgundy Barberry is useful as a colorful accent or specimen, in groupings, or as a natural hedge in landscape borders and home foundation plantings. It's high drought tolerance makes it an ideal choice for the Xeriscape (low water needs) garden. 

Royal Burgundy Barberry combines well with sedums, junipers, ornamental grasses, yucca, and other drought tolerant plants that thrive in sun and well-drained soil.

Spacing Recommendations:  1.5' for solid hedges, 4'+ for space between plants




Cultural Preferences

Barberry are exceptionally easy to grow when planted right and in the right spot. They prefer a well-drained soil and all the sun you can give them. Coloration is more intense with more sun. As with so many other ornamental landscape shrubs, barberry does not like a constantly soggy or wet soil. We've seen no insect or disease problems. When established, plants are very drought tolerant, requiring supplemental irrigation only during prolonged periods of summer drought.
