Helping You Become a More Successful Gardener
Boxleaf barberry is a thorny, evergreen shrub that may be semi-evergreen where winters are particularly cold and harsh. This native of Chile and Argentina tolerates a wide variety of conditions but is happiest in locations with full sun and evenly moist soils. Its small orange-yellow flowers bloom profusely in spring. By fall, it has an abundance of dark purple berries that persist through to winter and are eaten by birds. This attractive shrub is useful in hedge and foundation plantings.
