The Rose Glow Japanese Barberry combines rich purple foliage on its purple-red stems with rose-pink mottled leaves on the young growth. This combination of vibrant colors make this plant one of the most dramatic and colorful shrubs available. When this is combined with hardiness, freedom from pests, drought-resistance and deer-resistance too, it becomes an essential plant for any successful garden. In spring the first flush of leaves is deep purple, but this is quickly followed by new growth that is rose-pink, mottled with purple. The color combination is stunning. Throughout the summer new growth maintains the pink and purple combination, then in fall the whole plant turns purple and red. As the leaves fall they reveal clusters of bright-red berries guaranteed to brighten up your winter garden, and attract birds from far and wide. This easily-grown plant fits well into any style of garden, and with its moderate height of around 5 feet it also fits well into gardens of any size.

  • Handsome purple and rose-pink foliage
  • Perfect mid-range size for any garden
  • Attractive red winter berries
  • Deer-proof and free of pests or diseases
  • Grows almost anywhere, whatever the climate

The Rose Glow Japanese Barberry should be planted in a sunny or partially-shaded spot, It will grow in any garden soil, as long as it is not constantly wet. It is pest and disease free and drought resistant. The thorny stems both resist deer and make this a great plant for security beneath windows or to keep out animals. It needs no special care at all, and it can easily be clipped into a dense and colorful hedge for beauty and security. It thrives across almost the whole country and is hardy to minus 30 degrees, as well as growing well in hot areas too.
