Plant details

Berberis x frikartii is a garden hybrid, partly derived from B. verruculosa which it closely resembles in its slow-growing and satisfyingly dense, compact habit. 'Amstelveen' is one of two varieties available, smaller and more shapely, a perfect shrub for evergreen display in a small garden. The gently arching stems are covered with small, cup-shaped, primrose yellow flowers in pairs, especially prolific in full sun although bushes will also flower well in light shade. It is best grown as a specimen, with enough space to spread naturally. The Royal Horticultural Society have given it their prestigious Award of Garden Merit (AGM).
