Orange Rocket Barberry is an award-winning barberry that sports a unique color combination. Each spring new foliage starts out a vibrant coral-orange that fades to purple and then green in the summer. Once fall comes around, the deciduous leaves of this barberry turn a vibrant ruby red. Lastly, this barberry does have small spiny branches protruding from each leaf cluster that look like thorns. These little spines produce crimson red berries in the fall, which birds enjoy. Orange Rocket is known for its columnar habit, growing 2-3 feet wide by 4-5 feet tall. Making it perfect as a compact vertical element in mixed gardens or in containers. Or plant it as a specimen among other plants, and watch this Orange Rocket's foliage dazzle in your landscape.

    Vivid color right out of box
    The barberry's came within 4 days and looked beautiful and healthy right out of the box. I have had one for three years and it really makes a show in the landscape!

        The plant looked okay when I received it. However, it is not growing afterwards and seems dying. I transferred it to a bigger planter pot with addition of new soils and water it twice a week. All the leaves are drying somehow. I got a different plant from the same vendor. I did the same thing, and the other plant is growing fine.

          It arrived with most of it's leaves missing. It was also very dry and shriveled up. I planted it anyways and I'm hoping that it will come back to life.

Still wanted to give it a try so planted it in sun , water it regularly but now it’s condition is very bad . So within 3 days it almost dead. I don’t know weather it will survive or not . I am very sad

            Purchased ~$300 worth of plants from Home Depot, including this one which was over $30.00 It is the only one out of the 16 or so that have been planted that died -- it died almost immediately. For $30+ it is definitely a disappointment.

            Very pretty!
            I ordered 2 2.5 quart sized barberry shrubs. They really are a beautiful color. They came very healthy looking.

              Beautiful small accent shrub
              This is a gorgeous small accent shrub that stays small, and will take some shade. It was perfect in my area that had a lot of green, with a red Japanese maple in the back to play off of. It's the perfect splash of color in this area. It only gets abt 2ft x2ft, so don't expect it to get big. It works best as an accent shrub for its foliage, especially in a border. It needs sun, but will take some shade especially in the afternoon. It will lose its leaves in the winter and come back in spring.

                Arrived in great shape!
                I was reluctant to by this orange rocket by mail but decided to take a chance. I’m so glad I did. It arrived well-packaged in a cardboard box. Can’t wait to plant it.
