Berberis gagnepainii

Berberis gagnepainii

Forms an impenetrable evergreen hedge. If left to grow it can reach a height of 8ft (2m).

Produces rich yellow or orange flowers April and May, followed by blue berries. Prune 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.
