BERBERIS thunbergii ‘Crimson Pygmy’

Barberry –

0185This Crimson Pygmy Japanese barberry (also ‘Atropurpurea Nana’) is a naturally selected dwarf cultivar with bright red-purple leaves in spring maturing to a deep bronze-red. Attractive bright red fruit persists into winter. Barberry has been known to self-sow.

Thorny, but still suitable for low hedges, borders and foundation plantings, ‘Crimson Pygmy’ can be used in the rock garden or containers. It makes a nice accent plant around other perennials, grasses and shrubs with green foliages. A tough plant, barberry is tolerant of many types of difficult sites.

>Berberis thunbergii is sometimes considered an invasive plant particularly in the northeastern United States. It can form dense thickets in natural areas where it changes soil characteristics and displaces wildlife.
