Berberis x lologensis 'Apricot Queen'

Plant details

Berberis x lologensis is a particularly beautiful berberis. A natural hybrid, it was discovered in Argentina growing next to its parents, one of which is the superb Berberis darwinii. The flowers of 'Apricot Queen' are a particularly charming shade of apricot orange and are borne prolifically in long trusses or racemes, which look especially vibrant in the late spring sunlight. It's best grown as a specimen shrub in a mixed or shrub border, with space to spread naturally. The Royal Horticultural Society has given it its prestigious Award of Garden Merit (AGM).
