BERBERIS thunbergii 'Kobold' PP3038
Japanese Barberry, Kobold Japanese Barberry
Kobold Japanese barberry is a super dwarf, uniform, mounded shrub with particularly attractive dark green leaves. Originating from eastern Asia and Japan, its small leaves turn yellow and red in fall. Red berries, which are attractive to birds, appear in late summer to fall and persist into winter.
Provide this barberry with full to partial sun and average, well-drained soil. Thorny, but still suitable for low hedges and barriers, it also makes a nice accent plant for containers. This is a beautiful and tough shrub that is tolerant of many soil types and sites.
