Dwarf Coral Hedge Barberry

Berberis x stenophylla 'Corallina Compacta'

Compact form remains dense without pruning. Produces small dark green leaves on thorny stems. Blooms in spring with small clusters of nodding yellow-orange flowers that mature to dark blue fruits later in the season. A tidy plant sized for city gardens and limited spaces. Equally useful for spotting into gaps in beds, borders and foundation planting. Evergreen shrub. Full sun. Slow growing 1½ to 2 feet tall and wide.
