A dense and spiny shrub, Berberis thunbergii hedge plants boast small, yellow, cup-shaped flowers in the spring and glossy orange, oval berries in the autumn that mature to scarlet red. The green foliage of Japanese Barberry is deciduous, falling after turning shades of orange and red in the autumn.

* Please note, 1 bare root = 1 Berberis thunbergii plant, not a bundle of plants. We use a mixture of bare root photos taken in leaf from our growing sites in summer, as well as during the bare root planting season when Berberis thunbergii may be defoliated.

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. Berberis thunbergii is slow growing, small and suited to all but the wettest sites. Full shade, coastal and exposed sites are no problem for Japanese Berberis. Keep it tight and tidy or allow this Berberis to bush out a little for a more natural look.

Combine thunbergii Berberis with

Grow Berberis thunbergii alone for a more uniform look or try combing randomly with Purple Berberis (Berberis thun. atropurpurea) for a splash of extra colour. If you’'re creating a magnificent mix of shrubs for hedging, then consider our Tapestry hedging as part of our Mixed Hedging pack range.

Growth rate of Japanese Barberry hedging

This slow growing plant will achieve 10-15cm a year. Japanese Barberry is great for heights up to 1m.

Delivery was quick and hedging was well packed, although the delivery man pricked his hand when using the spaces provided for handling the package. The plants were a reasonable size and had a good root system and, now that they have been pruned, the wood appears green, so looking forward to a successful project.

Happy with Berberis, although again I thought it would have been a larger/more established plant.
