Berberis thunbergia ‘Aurea’
4 – 8
3’ HT , 3’ SP Very slow growing. After 20 years, only about 18-24” HT & SP.
Emerges bright yellow in the spring. In the shade, it will green up a bit in the summer, but is still much brighter than the medium greens all around. Great way to brighten up a shade garden. The thorns, thought uncomfortable, are at least rather small.
Full Sun to Part Shade. Very adaptable. Withstands dry conditions. Will not tolerate extremely moist conditions.
