CARE
Care Thrives in average, well-drained soil; avoid poorly drained, wet sites. Water deeply, regularly in first growing season to establish an extensive root system. Once established reduce frequency; tolerates moderate drought. Fertilize before new growth begins in spring. Prune in late winter to promote dense new growth.
HISTORY
Lore This variety seldom produces viable seeds, making it more environmentally friendly for regions where unwanted Japanese barberry seedlings are considered invasive.
