The Dwarf Golden Japanese Barberry is a great plant for zingy foliage color, with its beautiful golden leaves appearing in spring and staying bright and gold until fall. Foliage color is always useful in the garden, since it lasts all season, not just for a few weeks, like flowers, and yellow is an especially useful color, because it goes will many other common foliage colors of other plants. This plant makes an upright, rounded shrub 2 to 3 feet tall and the same across – an ideal size for planting beneath windows around your house, for making a low hedge, or for planting among other small shrubs and flowers in a smaller garden. It can even be grown in a large container or in planter boxes to brighten up your terrace or patio.

  • Brilliant golden-yellow foliage from spring to fall
  • Perfect smaller size for limited spaces
  • Thrives in any soil and is drought resistant
  • No pests or diseases and deer-proof too
  • Hardy to minus 30 degrees

Colorful shrubs for colder areas can be hard to find, but the Dwarf Golden Japanese Barberry is hardy in all but the coldest parts of the country. It will grow in full sun or partial shade, thrive in any kind of soil, including poor, sandy soils, and it is drought resistant once established. It can be allowed to grow naturally for low-maintenance, but it is also easily clipped if you want a neater form. It has no significant pests or diseases and it is usually not eaten by deer or rabbits.
