Japanese Barberry (Berberis thunbergii) description

Often known as Japanese Barberry, Berberis thunbergii is a popular shrub that offers shelter for wildlife whilst creating a dense, prickly hedge. Being a compact Berberis, thunbergii makes a good alternative to Box (Buxus sempervirens), especially where Box blight has been present.

Common uses for thunbergii Berberis hedges

Ideal for use as an intruder deterrent Berberis thunbergii can be kept small and so it is ideal for planting below windows to deter unwanted visitors.

Keep it tight and tidy or allow this Berberis to bush out a little for a more natural look.
