Berberis Helmond Pillar, commonly known as Barberry, is an attractive slow to medium, dwarf, deciduous shrub of narrowly upright form, with dark reddish purple leaves providing a perfect back drop to its small but bright yellow, red tinted flowers which appear in spring and are perfect for pollinators. Towards Autumn the leaves change through varying shades of red prior to falling to reveal its upright, prickly, purplish stems. Ideal for an accent plant when placed amongst other lower growing shrubs.
