Orange Rocket Japanese Barberry


Ever-changing, multi-hued foliage lends a fiery burst of color to your landscape! Dense, thorny plant features small oval leaves that emerge vibrant coral-orange in spring, gradually turning bright green in summer, then back to intense oranges and reds in fall. Subtle yellow spring flowers are followed by red fruit that birds enjoy. The compact plant grows quickly into a narrow columnar shape without pruning, fitting perfectly into today's smaller gardens. Makes a great specimen, barrier or hedge plant and "thriller" element in sunny containers.
