Looking After Your Berberis Julianae
A very low maintenance plant, quick growing and very hardy. This very colorful Barberry prefers to be grown in a fertile, moist but well drained soil, and a sunny or semi-shaded area of the garden. Very little pruning is required, although a gentle clip to retain its shape and take out any damaged stems is best done during late Autumn.
