Types of Evergreen Barberry Shrubs
Barberry shrubs are hardy, evergreen plants used in gardens as foundations, backdrops and borders. They’re well known for their low-maintenance nature and variety of interesting colors. Three colorful varieties are available from Garden Goods Direct, each with its beautiful coloration:

- The Rose Glow: A bit subtler in its coloration, with rose-colored leaves mottled white and green
- The Crimson Pygmy Barberry: A densely branched dwarf shrub that features deep crimson foliage
Why Plant Evergreen Barberry Shrubs?
Evergreen barberry shrubs are all show-stopping plants, featuring rich red colors in the warm seasons. Even better, their evergreen nature means they maintain their foliage year-round in warmer regions, though they’ll shed their leaves in northern areas of the United States. Their low profile and eye-popping coloration make them a wonderful choice for accent pieces, though they’re also a great alternative for traditional green hedges.
On top of these benefits, barberries are popular for their low-maintenance. They’re extremely hardy plants that are repulsive to deer and other animals, meaning you won’t have to worry about wildlife eating your accent plants.
Tips for Choosing the Right Variety of Evergreen Barberry Shrubs
Before choosing the best barberry shrub for your garden, determine where it will be planted. Barberry bushes grow best in USDA zones 4 through 9 — so, most areas of the continental United States. If you live in the appropriate area, choose a planting location for your barberry bush that has full to partial sunlight and well-drained, slightly acidic soil.
Beyond these considerations, you simply need to decide what coloration and size you prefer. The admiration barberry and crimson pygmy barberry are both small bushes, growing around 2.5 feet tall and wide, while the rose glow grows up to 5 feet. If you want something small and vivid, choose the smaller varieties — otherwise, the rose glow offers a greater spread of color.
How to Care for Evergreen Barberry Shrubs
Learning how to plant evergreen barberry shrubs is the first step to care. Be sure to plant them in an area with full sun or partial shade and well-draining soil. Try to fertilize the soil before planting to encourage root growth, and water your new bush well after planting until established.
Once your barberry bush is established, it requires little care on your end. They require little watering or fertilization, and you don’t need to prune them. If you do want your barberry to retain a certain shape, simply prune them in the late winter before new growth emerges.
