Rosey Rocket Barberry is a narrow upright branching deciduous shrub valued for its vibrant foliage that grows full to the ground.  The variegated leaves that are particularly noticeable on young leaves, which emerge a deep red with soft pink and white molting that darkens as they mature.  Unnoticeable tiny yellow flowers bloom in spring that gives way to an abundance of fruit that remains on the thorny coral stems after the leaves drop.  Best color in full sun and well-drained soils.  Drought and deer resistant.
