Berberis thunbergii – ‘Orange Rocket ‘

Amazing for Hedging

  • The foliage colour of this dazzling deciduous shrub emerges a bright orange-red before turning a deeper ruby, so it really catches the eye when woven through the border or potted up on the patio.
  • It has a naturally slender and upright habit, so it also lends itself well to forming a lowish hedge or screen.
  • As well as the colourful foliage, Berberis 'Orange Rocket' also produces small yellow flowers in spring and early summer, and these are followed by red berries in the autumn.
