Berberis thunbergii 'Crimson Pygmy'

Crimson Pygmy is so-named because of its color and compact, rounded form. In the fall, its foliage turns a beautiful reddish-orange.

In spring it gets waxy little flowers and, in summer, oval red berries that last into the fall and early winter. Presents an especially nice contrast to evergreens.
