Product Overview

The Orange Rocket Barberry from the Southern Living Plant Collection elevates gardens to new heights! During spring, young foliage emerges as a vivid coral. This soft foliage matures through Summer becoming an eye-catching scarlet-red. Afterward, it features one more color change before the winter sets in. You'll see the scarlet-red leaves age to an elegant ruby red. This adds even more vivid red hues to your fall landscape. Like most Barberries, this variety features small sharp thorns on the branches. Once established, this fast-growing plant proves itself to be quite hardy. This barberry shines as a border, slope plant, mass planting, or in a container. Mix in a few as accents in a foundation planting. They'll take your home's curb appeal to the next level!

I recently started teamed up with a local landscaper and started do landscape design. I purchased several of these for a client's landscape. They are perfect for small beds. The plants were healthy and packed well when they arrived. It's been about 4 months since they were planted and they are doing great! I can't want to see them next season! I would buy these again or purchase other plants from the Southern Living collection.

Plants arrived much thinner and less robust than pictured; about 80% of leaves fell off in the first 7-8 days, with about another 10% lost in the subsequent two weeks. Transplanted into Miracle Gro soil and watered as indicated on instructions. We'll see if they survive but I'm disappointed so far.

We received it today, looks a little battered and only few brunches, I will see if it survives. Definitely it is not a plant for a two gallon recipient, the plant is smaller than is shown. The 2 gallon recipient looks ridiculous big for the plant.

The entire plant died then started coming back. It does NOT ship well at all. I wish I had known about this.
