02 Mar Berberis thunbergii f. atropurpurea ‘Rose Glow’
Japanese barberry is another notable deciduous shrub for showy foliage into your garden all season long. First leaves are purple, but new shoots emerge as a rose-pink mottled with bronzish to purplish red splotches. Since this species has thorns on it can also be used as a barrier or hedge to keep unwanted animals out where a fence is not possible.
