Crimson Pygmy Barberry is a well-branched dwarf deciduous shrub valued for its vibrant foliage that grows full to the ground.  The small oval leaves are a crimson red with a bronze tinge that becomes brilliant red in fall.  Tiny yellow flowers bloom in spring and are followed by abundant bright red fruits that stay on the stems after the leaves fall.  Best color in full sun and well-drained soils.  Drought and deer resistant.
