      This deciduous berberis is grown for its dark red-purple leaves and for its narrowly upright habit. It has small, red-tinted, pale-yellow flowers in mid-spring and in autumn, the leaves turn a brilliant shade of red. It is low maintenance, and useful for for giving vertical interest in a well-drained, sunny or partly shady border.

      Garden care: Requires minimal pruning. Cut back any straggly stems that spoil the shape in late autumn or winter. For the best autumn colour, plant in a sunny spot.
