Golden Rocket Barberry PP18626Berberis thunbergii
Colorful Dwarf Shrub. A narrow, upright-growing shrub with showy, bright yellow foliage that creates excellent color contrast in borders. This variety produces few flowers and little to no viable seed, making it a great alternative over many other barberries. Deciduous.
Thrives in average, well-drained soil; avoid poorly drained, wet sites. Best color in full sun. Water deeply, regularly during the first growing season to establish an extensive root system; reduce frequency once established. Apply fertilizer before new growth begins in spring. Prune young plants in late winter to promote dense new growth.
