The Fireball Japanese Barberry is a round, compact shrub with the richest and brightest red leaves of any barberry bush. It grows just 1 or 2 feet tall and broad, making it perfect for the front of beds, as edging, or as a low hedge. In spring it is bright red, holding its color all summer, and in fall taking darker tones, bringing brilliance to your garden for months and months. It doesn’t flower or produce seeds, so it can be grown safely even in areas where Berberis is prohibited because of its invasion of natural areas.

  • Round compact ball needs no trimming
  • Strongest red leaf color of any Barberry
  • Keeps its color all summer, without greening out
  • Resistant to drought, cold, pollution and deer
  • Excellent for edging and low barriers

Cold doesn’t bother the Fireball Japanese Barberry, and neither does drought, once it is established. It grows well in full sun or light partial shade, and in any soil, from sand to clay, that is well-drained. Its tough roots hold the soil on slopes, and it grows well in hot, dry places. This tough plant tolerates urban conditions and needs no trimming to stay neat, tidy and bright. Pests and diseases are not a problem, and deer normally leave it alone.
