Barberry Shrubs for Sale Online
Barberries are among the most popular shrubs around. They are very hardy, deer resistant shrubs. They have small thorns that make them an excellent barrier or hedge; in fact, some insurance companies recommend planting them as foundation shrubs under windows to deter break-ins. They are equally happy in full sun or partial shade, and they come in all different colors ranging from bright red like Barberry Admiration with its golden leaf margins to the cooling dark red (almost purple) Barberry Crimson Pygmy and everything in-between. Each variation adds plenty of interest to the landscape. They do lose their leaves during the winter in colder zones, so plant them with other shrubs that are evergreen. During the spring summer and Fall, nothing pairs better in our opinion than the hot reds of barberries with the cool blues and greens of conifers like Blue Chip Juniper. Our offering of barberry shrubs is ever-growing and we are pleased to be able to offer this wonderful group of plants.
