At the facility where I used to work, they had these awesome bushes (actually they are probably called hedges) everywhere. There were some that turned bright yellow and some bright red/maroon. The guys who planted them couldn't even tell me what they were. This has been buggin me for almost 4 years! Can someone help me find out what it is? They were kept squarely trimmed and were only about 3 - 3 1/2 feet tall. This is just a small sample. Thank you!

Barberry / Berberis of some kind, probably Japanese. It's become a problem in some states.

I concur with claypa - love it, have alot of Japanese barberry here, but it is well behaved in this climate. The colors are gorgoeus.

Are there any plants that discourage snakes? If not, any other ideas? Carol7 35 Aug 23, 2007 12:37 AM
