Berberis thunbergii 'Atropurpurea'

Barberry (bare root 30-40cms)

Price: €1.40

A very easy shrub for a compact, inpenetrable hedge. This barberry has dark purple leaves and grows well in most conditions, making it an ideal 'low maintenance' plant which establishes quickly and grows in many situations. Because of its small prickly leaves, it also doubles as an effective barrier. Orange flowers in spring. Trim in late summer or autumn if required. Plant approximately three plants per metre for a dense hedge. Deciduous, height to 2 metres. 

  • Bare root plants 30-40 cms high.
  • Fast to plant and quick to establish.
  • Well-established root system.
  • November to March only.
  • Delivery is approx 3-4 weeks from receipt of orders.
