Berberis - Sunjoy Gold Beret Barberry

A unique dwarf, low mounding Barberry. Sunjoy Gold Beret shows off its red new growth foliage in the spring that turns golden yellow then turns back to red again in the fall. Its neat and tidy nature requires no pruning to produce a beautiful plant. Use this shrub in landscapes for borders, groupings, mass planting, and in containers. Proven to be burn resistant in side-by-side tests with other yellow leaved Barberries. Certified Rust Resistant.
