Rose Glow Japanese Barberry

Regular price $15.00 Sale

Berberis thunbergii f. atropurpurea 'Rose Glow'

Deer resistant and tolerates urban conditions. First leaves are purple, but new shoots emerge as a rose-pink mottled with bronzish to purplish red splotches. Many branched, reddish-brown stems have sharp thorns.

Tiny, yellowish flowers appear in late April to early May. Bead-like, bright red berries form in fall and often last through the winter.
