BARBERRY CRIMSON PYGMY
Crimson Pygmy Barberry has beautiful deep ruby-red foliage that remains all season long and its new growth has a stunning bright red hue. Small yellow flowers in spring produce bright red fruit and later combine with fall colors of orange-scarlet to create an excellent addition to any landscape. The Crimson Pygmy Barberry enjoys the benefits of bright sunlight. If planted in the shade, it will tend to lose its color and not grow as well. This shrub is insect resistant and deer resistant. The Crimson Pygmy Barberry grows well in dry soil and can tolerate lack of water and even a small amount of salt. Barberry grows best in well drained soil and even tolerates clay soils as well. Grows 2 to 3 feet tall and 3 feet wide.
