Berberis darwinii

Darwin’s Barberry

A large growing, dense evergreen shrub that makes an excellent backdrop to other shrubs but also works very well as a tough flowering hedge. The shiny, small, holly-like leaves of Berberis Darwinii are smothered in orange-yellow bell-shaped flowers in Spring & early Summer and are followed by edible purple berries in Autumn. It is by far the best Berberis for a coastal location. Berberis Darwinii will tolerate some shade and will grow in all but wet sites. A good option for those who want a bit more colour from their seaside hedge. Holds the RHS award for garden merit.
