The William Penn Barberry is a little-known plant that is making a big comeback. This striking evergreen bush with arching branches has beautiful glossy green foliage that turns deep red in fall and winter. The full clusters of golden yellow flowers along the stems in spring make a colorful show, and the dark-blue berries in fall are fascinating. Don’t confuse this plant with the Japanese barberry – no, this is a hybrid, non-invasive plant that loves hotter parts of the country. It makes a tough and resistant barrier to intruders and looks simply beautiful.

  • Unique barberry with glossy green leaves
  • A non-invasive variety, safe to grow everywhere
  • Masses of large golden flowers in spring
  • Blue berries in fall
  • Evergreen leaves turn red for fall and winter

Zones from 6 to 9 are where to grow the William Penn Barberry. It enjoys lots of sun, and it loves hot, dry places, with well-drained soil, even if they are sandy, stony and dry. Avoid wet areas and it will thrive and grow vigorously for you. No special care is needed, and it can be trimmed into a hedge as needed or left to grow naturally bushy. It has no pests or diseases, and both deer and rabbits leave it alone.
