Concorde Japanese Barberry
Berberis thunbergii 'Concorde'
|Description||A petite barberry with deep maroon-purple foliage that becomes even more intense in the fall. Small yellow flowers may be followed by a few bright red berries. This variety produces little to no viable seed, making it a great alternative over others. Perfect size for edging as a small hedge or for containers. Deciduous.|
|Watering||Water when top 3 inches of soil is dry.|
|Mature Size||Dense, rounded growth; reaches 18 to 24 in. tall and wide.|
|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.|
|Lore||This variety seldom produces viable seeds, making it more environmentally friendly for regions where unwanted Japanese barberry seedlings are considered invasive.|
