Golden Barberry is a compact branching deciduous shrub valued for its vibrant foliage.  Its leaves emerge in spring bright sunshine yellow with orange tones that fades into lemon-green in summer and eventually gains a burgundy tone in fall.  Golden Barberry has tiny inconspicuous yellow flowers and sparse fruits. Best color in full sun.  Foliage grows full to ground making Golden Barberry an excellent filler plant. Drought and deer resistant.  

Barberry has known use of the root bark as an anthelmintic, antiseptic and febrifuge, and can be used orally as a treatment for various enteric infections.*

Within a few days of our order, we had beautiful, healthy plants delivered to our yard. Talk about a pleasant surprise to have everything we asked for unloaded and waiting for us when we were ready to plant without having to leave the house.

An amazing resource for plants, advice and landscape expertise. ServScape designed a rooftop garden for me which included the design, sourcing the planting materials, and installation, including a small irrigation system.

My order exceeded expectations last summer! Plus everything in pots and in the ground came back bigger and better early this spring.
