Barberry (bare root)
One of the easiest and most successful shrubs for small hedges, with a dark red / purple colour. This barberry has dark purple leaves and grows well in many conditions, making it an ideal 'low maintenance' plant which establishes quickly and grows in many situations. Because of its very small prickly hedge, it also doubles as an effective barrier. Orange flowers in spring. Trim in late summer or autumn if you want it clipped. Plant approximately three plants per metre for a dense hedge. Deciduous, height to 2 metres. Sold as bare root plants which are economical, fast to plant and quick to establish. Bare root plants 30-40 cms high. Available November to March only.
