The Tiny Gold Barberry is a small deciduous shrub that grows a little more than a foot tall, keeping a dense, compact form. It has small leaves that are glowing gold in spring, turning more chartreuse green in summer, and this coloring is perfect for adding light and brightness to any garden space at all, including planter boxes. It needs no clipping to look perfect all the time, and it doesn’t produce any seed, so it is safe to grow it anywhere, even where barberries can spread into the natural environment around you.

  • Perfect small mound of golden leaves that stay that way
  • The right size for low ‘no-clip’ borders
  • Dense compact structure always looks neat and tidy
  • The ideal plant for smaller gardens and limited spaces
  • Tough and reliable in a wide range of garden conditions

Full sun will bring out the strongest coloring in the Tiny Gold Barberry, but it will grow in some partial shade too, but be more greenish. It thrives in any well-drained soil, including poor urban soils and in difficult locations. Once established it is drought resistant, and it is cold resistant even in zone 4. Pests and diseases are normally never an issue, and deer don’t like it either. A simple clip of older plants in early spring will keep it as neat as anyone could ever want it to be – but this is strictly optional.

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