Berberis thunbergii atropurpurea 'Rose Glow' 5L

Mottled pink and white foliage, darkening with age. Stunning purple-red Autumn colour. Small orange-red flowers in late Spring. As with all Berberis, this charming shrub does have thorns on its stems, so plant at the back of a border to avoid getting scratched! Prune after flowering for more fresh young foliage. A very easy shrub to grow, quickly forming a decent sized plant. Grow in sun for the best colour foliage, but as a very robust plant, it will grow almost anywhere as long as the soil is not waterlogged. Makes a good hedge of between 90cm and 150cm tall. A great plant to contrast against larger grasses like Miscanthus, or light coloured shrubs like Choisya ternata `Sundance`. Code 44633
