Why the Concorde Barberry?

Dark, velvety burgundy-purple. This decadent color can add so much to the landscape. It brings definition to a row of edging plants, it makes a wonderful contrast to pastel flowers and silvery foliage. Look to Concorde Barberry to supply a dose of deep, rich burgundy-purple in your own beds and borders. This handsome Accent holds its color all summer and complements virtually everything it’s planted with. In late fall, Concorde goes out with a bang, turning a brilliant, shimmering red before dropping its leaves for the winter. So satisfying!

Japanese Barberries are fun and useful plants that keep getting more and more popular. Even though they’re armed with small prickles, gardeners have embraced them, because they come in so many interesting shapes and colors. There’s one for every sunny spot in the landscape. Concorde Barberry arose at Wavecrest Nursery in Fennville, Michigan. It has proved to be a choice selection due to its ability to hold its dark, luscious color better than other purple-leaved Barberries. It’s also admired for its petite size and tidy habit.

How to use in the landscape?

Japanese Barberries have gotten a bad rap in recent years because some of them have become invasive, particularly in the Northeast. Invasive plants can crowd out natives and disrupt local ecosystems. Concorde Barberry sets little to no seed, however, so it can’t become a problem. No need to worry!

How To Plant

Grow Concorde Barberry in full sun to bring out its richest colors. Shade will make the leaves turn green. Choose a site where the soil drains freely, as this plant will not tolerate “wet feet.” It needs regular water during the establishment period, but will be quite drought tolerant after that. Little pruning will be necessary. Few insect pests or diseases trouble Barberries, and deer tend to leave the thorny branches alone. Japanese Barberries have come under fire lately for rampant reseeding in some areas, but Concorde so far has proven to be a non-fruiting clone.

How To Fertilize

Incorporate Elements Starter Plant food granular form into the soil when planting. If planting in spring or summer, start fertilizing late fall using Elements Starter Plant food granular form on an annual basis each late fall. Continue this for the first three years to get your plant well established.
