Berberis thunbergii f. atropurpurea 'Helmond Pillar'


5 year guarantee Perfect for pollinators
2 litre pot £18.99

This shrub is deciduous so it will lose all its leaves in autumn, then fresh new foliage appears again each spring.

  • Position: full sun or partial shade
  • Soil: well-drained soil
  • Rate of growth: slow to average
  • Flowering period: April to May
  • Hardiness: fully hardy

    This deciduous berberis is grown for its dark red-purple leaves and for its narrowly upright habit. It has small, red-tinted, pale-yellow flowers in mid-spring and in autumn, the leaves turn a brilliant shade of red. It is low maintenance, and useful for giving vertical interest in a well-drained, sunny or partly shady border.

  • Garden care: Requires minimal pruning. Where pruning is required, cut back in autumn or winter, after the appearance of the autumn fruits.
