BERBERIS thunbergii 'Aurea Nana'
Golden Dwarf Barberry, Japanese Barberry
Golden dwarf barberry is a dense, compact shrub that originates from eastern Asia and Japan. Its small, attractive, golden-green leaves turn orange-yellow in the fall. Bright red berries, which are attractive to birds, appear in late summer to fall and persist into winter.
Provide 'Aurea Nana' with full to part sun and average, well-drained soil. Thorny, but still suitable for hedges and barriers, it also makes a nice accent plant. This is a tough shrub that is tolerant of many soil types and sites.
