The Ruby Carousel® Barberry is a dense, rounded deciduous shrub reaching 3 or 4 feet tall within a few years. It has rich red leaves that hold their color through the seasons, brightening your landscape. It trims easily into hedges and borders, and it is a great security barrier beneath windows. Add color and interest to your shrub beds with this tough and reliable plant. In spring it has a big display of golden-yellow blooms, and when the leaves drop it is decorated with clusters of bright red berries.

  • Very dense branching and a rounded form
  • Rich red leaves keep their color through the seasons
  • Spring display of bright yellow flowers
  • Big fall crop of red berries
  • Perfect for barriers and hedges

Grow the Ruby Carousel® Barberry in full sun to keep it richly colored. It grows in any well-drained soil, including shallow, rocky soils and tough city gardens. Once established it is drought resistant, and pests don’t bother it. Neither do deer or rabbits, and it grows well with almost no attention at all. Trim in late winter and again in early summer for hedges.

The sale of Japanese Barberry varieties that produce seeds is banned in Maine, New York State, and Minnesota. Other states have placed restrictions. Although we attempt to stay up to date on each states’ Department of Agriculture regulations, rules can vary, and change rapidly. This link will show you the situation in your own state and remember that barberry is not a problem in many states. Check our site for non-seeding varieties of Barberry, as many are available. These are not restricted by most states, as they cannot spread.
