Berberis darwinii Compacta

Darwin’s Barberry Compact Form

Attractive all year, Berberis darwinii Compacta is an evergreen, dwarf shrub with spiny stems and a dense habit, ideal for making a low hedge which will make burglars and livestock think twice about invading your garden. The leaves look like tiny holly leaves, emerging bronze and turning deep green as they mature. Masses of showy, bright orange flowers appear April–May, with blue-back berries appearing in autumn. Compact Darwin’s barberry will cope with dry shade if it’s not too deep. Excellent plant for pollinators and makes a great low seaside hedge.
