Rose Glow Japanese Barberry
Berberis thunbergii 'Rose Glow'
|Description||Richly colored foliage on graceful branching makes this a wonderful hedge, barrier planting or single accent. Deep rose-red foliage is mottled with white and green in spring, bringing wonderful, warm color into the landscape. Bright red berries in fall and winter. Deciduous.|
|Watering||Water when top 3 inches of soil is dry.|
|Blooms||Inconspicuous; prized for foliage.|
|Mature Size||Slowly reaches 5 ft. tall, 4 ft. wide.|
|Landscape Use||Barrier, Border, Hedge|
|Design Ideas||This Barberry is perhaps the most beautiful and unique. It has an arching form and a different look for every season. Makes a startling single specimen. Allow to grow into its natural shape or into a hedge, which will be prickly enough to keep the most ardent intruder away. Add as singles or small clusters to shrub beds and borders as a middle-elevation accent amidst other flowering plants.|
|Companion Plants||Boxwood (Buxus); False Cypress (Chamaecyparis); Potentilla (Potentilla); Spirea (Spiraea); Weigela (Weigela)|
|Care||Thrives in average, well-drained soil; avoid poorly drained, wet sites. Water deeply, regularly during the first growing season to establish an extensive root system. Once established reduce frequency; tolerates heat and moderate drought. Fertilize before new growth begins in spring. No pruning necessary except to maintain desired shape.|
