|Botanical Pronunciation||BUR-bur-is thun-BER-jee-eye|
|Lore||The fruit of barberries has been used in various culinary preparations. It has been pickled for use as garnish. Berries of B. thunbergii when ripe are made into jelly and added to comfits.|
|Average Size at Maturity||Slow growing; reaches only 12 in. tall, 18 in. wide.|
|Design Ideas||Yellow foliage makes this a bright spot in any garden. An excellent way to spice up mixed shrub borders to stand up all season against dark evergreens. The perfect plant to make seasonal bloomers literally pop out in high contrast. A great choice to break up long edges of green lawn. Calls attention to important points in foundation planting front yard or back. Create a super bold yellow edge or intermix this with closely related dwarf purple barberries for an eye popping effect. A natural for modern gardens dependent on foliage color for interest.|
