This Berberis thunbergii atropurpurea 'Nana', or dwarf purple barberry, which is a little less of a tongue twister, is a first-rate deciduous dwarf shrub.
In spring, outstanding, red-tinted, pale yellow flowers appear above the purple-tinted foliage. This foliage remains throughout the summer until Autumn, when it dazzles and sets borders alight as the foliage turns to fiery red.
With the eye-catching foliage, compact size, and easy to grow nature, this Berberis is a great choice for the smaller garden. It can also be used to form a low informal hedge for a sunny or partially shady site or can be kept in pots for the patio.
The compact, low growing domes make it a must for the front of a shrub border, reaching just 70cm high and wide. It can be kept more compact by clipping. Try it mixed with plants that have silver foliage, where the different coloured hues will compliment each other perfectly.
Grow in full sun or partial shade in any moist yet well-drained soil. Supplied in approx 1.5- 2 litre containers.
Customers should check whether plants are suitable for their homes and gardens before purchasing.
