Berberis julianae ‘Spring Glory’

I imported this shrub some time back and it didn’t have a recognised name at the time and was called something or other of Hort. There is a picture of this very plant in Michael Dirr’s book and the above is what he calls it. So it will have to do for now.

Whatever it is it is a stunning evergreen shrub to 2metres or so with deep green narrow foliage that starts out ruby red before it matures. Its leaves and its arching elegant habit are its best features and worth growing it for alone however it also has pale yellow flowers followed by black berries.

Grow it in sun or semi-shade and it will pay its way in any garden and its thorns will stop the kids cutting the corners in the garden! I have plants in 7″ pots for $22.50
