A poorly placed mature shrub, unless keeping out thieves, becoming straggly in March 2011 in se PA
A lumpy sheared specimen showing stems and twigs in March 2011 in se PA
Foliage just turning its autumn colours
Barberry bush one of several, very easy to grow, great change of colors and if you can avoid the thorns great color for floral arrangements.
Everchanging color in the foliage is the greatest plus for this plant. Great addition for the winter garden in the north.
Purchased this for it's color and to plant under windows as burgular deterent.
Mid June, with Fireglow Euphorbia
