Full Description

'Sunjoy Gold Pillar' is a great accent plant for small landscapes and adds fantastic vertical interest with its columnar habit. New leaves start as red and turn a bright green as they mature. In the fall, plants transform to a vibrant red-orange. The Japanese barberry is a spiny, deciduous shrub. Leaves are the main attraction, turning to shades of orange, yellow and red in fall. It is easy to grow in full sun, tolerates part shade, and is very adaptable shrub for urban conditions. They do well in heat and drought, and are perfect for accent in the landscape, shrub border or spiny barrier plant. US Plant Patent #18,082.
