Hi! I am a Royal Burgundy Japanese Barberry, a compact shrub with rich burgundy foliage that is guaranteed to add an extremely fine and delicate texture to your landscape composition. I become even more eye-catching in the fall, when my foliage turns a deep red and sprouts showy scarlet plumes of ornamental fruit. I am low maintenance, and won't require much pruning. I thrive in any soil type, and am very tolerant of urban pollution - you can plant me right in the city! I am happiest, healthiest and most beautiful when I am planted and grown in full sun and my soil is well drained.

Care Guide

  • Watering: Regular watering during the first year after planting to establish a strong root system. Once established, it can tolerate some drought, but prefers consistently moist soil. Water deeply and infrequently, rather than frequent shallow watering
  • Maintenance: Requires little maintenance once established
  • Pruning: Can be pruned in late winter or early spring before new growth appears
  • (Optional): Fertilize in early spring with a balanced fertilizer, such as 10-10-10, according to package instructions. Avoid fertilizing in late summer or fall, as it can promote late season growth that may not have time to harden off before winter.
