The Golden Ruby® Barberry is a wonderful dwarf deciduous shrub around 18 inches tall and over 2 feet wide. It has vigorous growth with many short stems, so it soon becomes a dense mound that is ideal for accents and edging. The spring leaves are beautiful orange-red tones, and as they mature they turn darker red and develop a yellow edge around the leaf. In fall they turn vibrant orange to brick-red tones. This variety has very few flowers and no seeds are produced, so it can be grown anywhere, with zero potential to become invasive.

  • Top-notch dwarf barberry for edging and the front of beds
  • Bright orange-red spring leaves turn darker red for summer
  • Golden-yellow edging develops as the leaves mature
  • Bright orange to brick-red fall colors
  • Safe, no-seeding variety can be grown anywhere

Full sun will bring out the best leaf colors from the Golden Ruby® Barberry, and keep it compact and tough. It grows readily in any well-drained soil, including tough soils like urban gardens, sands, gravels and clay as well. It is reliably hardy in the coldest places and tolerates drought once it is well established. Hard to kill, it has no significant pests or diseases, and deer leave it alone.

*This variety produces little or no viable seed, so it cannot become invasive. It is safe to grow even where Berberis is restricted.
