Golden Barberry / Evergreen Berberis hedge (Berberis x stenophylla) description

A superbly wildlife friendly hedge that will keep intruders at bay, Berberis x stenophylla boasts small, glossy, dark green foliage at the base of which large spines sit. In the spring masses of golden yellow, cup-shaped, little flowers are borne in clusters; these flowers are popular with bees for their nectar and release a pleasant fragrance. A fast grower, Berberis x stenophylla is easy to maintain and offers year-round interest.
