Wintergreen Barberry Shrubs for Sale Online
Wintergreen Barberry, also known as the 'Berberis Julianae', transforms throughout the seasons for year-round interest. In the spring, petite lemon flowers start to come alive in clusters throughout the plant and last through the summer. Later, the center of the leaves darkens to lava red, a fitting look for the fall months. By winter, the foliage continues to darken until the whole plant is painted in crimson. This shrub will bounce back after being aggressively pruned, growing up to 10 feet tall, making it a good screen or barrier hedge.

How to Care for Wintergreen Barberry Shrubs
We suggest when planting your newly purchased Wintergreen Barberry Shrubs that you dig a hole twice as wide as the root system but not deeper. Depending on the quality of your existing soil, you may need to add a locally-sourced compost or topsoil to the backfill soil. We do not recommend using straight topsoil or compost as a backfill soil for Bonanza Gold Barberry because more times than not these products will retain entirely to much moisture and will cause the root system to rot. Adding compost or topsoil will help the young feeder roots of Wintergreen Barberry Bushes spread through the loose, nutrient-rich soil much easier than if you used solely the existing soil, which more times than not will be hard and compacted. The most common cause of plant death after transplanting is planting the new plant too deep. That is why we do not recommend planting in a hole any deeper than the soil line of the plant in the pot. A good rule is that you should still be able to see the soil the plant was grown in after back-filling the hole. Bio-tone starter fertilizer is a great starter fertilizer that provides plants with mycorrhizae fungus. It is a naturally-occurring, beneficial fungus that colonizes on the new growing roots of plants. It creates a barrier between the roots of the plant and fungus and pathogens that can cause root rot. We love this product and use it on all plants we install in our own gardens. Bio-tone is a gardener's best friend and can help guarantee your success.
