Berberis thunbergii 'Lutin Rouge' (PBR)


5 year guarantee Perfect for pollinators
2 litre pot £16.99
2 litre pot £16.99

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 June
  • Hardiness: fully hardy

    Add some colour to the mixed or shrub border with this new, brightly coloured offering. It has relatively upright growth and is nice and compact, so works well towards the front of the border. Once established, it is virtually maintenance free, becoming tolerant of drought and very cold hardy. It is so easy to grow, yet when grown in full sun, the foliage will put on a really dazzling display. It can also be grown in shadier conditions, however in those conditions the foliage will revert to green.

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