(Wintergreen Barberry)

A tall evergreen shrub, wintergreen barberry is the hardiest of the evergreen barberries. Its spiny, glossy green leaves become tinged red in the autumn and winter, and it has showy yellow flowers that develop into small, waxy blue fruits that turn almost black when fully mature. This shrub has large, fierce three-parted spines that make it almost impenetrable, especially when used in hedges. Wintergreen barberry prefers full to part-sun and is very site adaptable and low maintenance.
