Sunjoy Gold Pillar Barberry
Berberis thunbergii 'Sunjoy Gold Pillar'

USDA Plant Hardiness Zones: 4a-8b Find Your Zone >

Note:  For our customers who live and garden north of USDA Plant Hardiness Zone 4a, where this Barberry is not winter hardy, you'll be happy to know it can be grown in containers that can be brought indoors during winter and placed back outside when temperatures warm up in spring.



Special Attributes

Sunjoy Gold Pillar is an upright semi-columnar barberry with newly emerging leaves that are brilliant orange red in early spring maturing to a radiant bright yellow as the season progresses. Just before going dormant for the winter the leaves will turn back to orange-red. The bright yellow leaves provide an excellent contrast when combined with plants having dark green, burgundy, blue, or red foliage. 



Landscape & Garden Uses

Growing to 4 feet tall and 1.5 to 2 feet wide, Sunjoy Gold Pillar Barberry is useful as a colorful accent or specimen, in groupings, or as a natural hedge in landscape borders and home foundation plantings. Sunjoy Gold Pillar is great for those tight spaces where a slightly taller plant is desired. It's high heat and drought tolerance makes it an ideal choice for the Xeriscape (low water needs) garden. 

Sunjoy Gold Pillar 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, 3'+ 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.
