Plant details

Deciduous berberis is tough and easy to grow and is one of the least demanding plants available. 'Golden Ring' is a pretty variety with purple leaves with a narrow golden margin, which turn brilliant red in autumn. The yellow flowers contrast well with the foliage, while the bright red berries are conspicuous for several months.
