Berberis darwinii

Berberis darwinii

If left to grow it can reach a height of 8ft (2m).

It has holly like leaves and produces rich yellow or orange flowers April and May, followed by blue berries. It will form a thick evergreen hedge - clip after flowering (May/June).

Whilst it forms an excellent security hedge, care should be taken where young children are around as it produces strong thorns which can cause injury.
