Barberry Bushes

Barberries are tough and easy to grow shrubs that are great for adding color and texture to small spaces. These shrubs are evergreen in warmer regions, but they are extremely cold hardy and can grow as deciduous shrubs in cooler growing zones. Choose non-invasive cultivars like the varieties we carry.

How to Plant Barberry

Plant Barberries in full sun to part shade. Dig a hole twice the width of the root ball of your plant. Once placed in the hole the root ball of your plant should be slightly higher than the soil line. Fill the hole with water, backfill the hole with soil, and tamp the soil down gently with your hands to remove air pockets. Apply 1 to 2 inches of mulch around your plant and water again until the water begins to pool. Water daily for the first week.

How to Grow Barberry Bushes

Barberries are adaptable to any soil that drains well. After planting be sure to water deeply 1 to 2 times per week for the first 2 to 3 months while your plant is establishing. Once established Barberries are drought tolerant and little to no maintenance. Apply 1 to 2 inches of mulch to protect the roots in extreme temperatures and keep the soil moist. There is no need to prune this shrub. However, if you prefer a manicured look, prune in winter. Fertilize with our balanced slow release fertilizer in spring.
