BERBERIS julianae 'Spring Glory'
Spring Glory Barberry, Wintergreen Barberry
This entry has yet to be reviewed and approved by L2G editors.
An upright to mounded evergreen shrub, wintergreen barberry is the hardiest of the evergreen barberries. 'Spring Glory' has reddish new growth in spring which matures to leathery green leaves. These become tinged bronze-red in the autumn and winter. Its showy yellow flowers develop into small, waxy blue fruits in autumn that turn almost black when fully mature and persist into winter.
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-tolerant and low maintenance.
