Why plant Crimson Pygmy Barberry in Bulk?

Super-popular… and it’s easy to see why! Crimson Pygmy Barberry adds a formal element to your landscape with its compact, rounded shape, but it also delivers a joyful burst of color. In spring, the small, round leaves emerge in hot red tones, eventually settling down to a deep burgundy. In autumn, they turn a fiery red once more before falling. Use this petite plant to create color spots in your entryway garden, patio plantings, or mixed borders. Planted in a row, Crimson Pygmy also makes a sharp-looking low hedge or bed divider.

Japanese Barberry is known for its thorny branches, which make it useful for planting where you want to keep out intruders. Deer and rabbits likewise tend to leave this prickly plant alone, preferring to munch on less challenging menu items. What is really exciting about Japanese Barberry, though, is the bountiful variety of sizes, shapes, and colors it now comes in. It has come a long way from the plain green type normally found in the wild! Crimson Pygmy Barberry originated in a nursery in the Netherlands in 1942. It is still the most plentiful Japanese Barberry on the market today.

The Crimson Pygmy Barberry is the perfect plant to add along any walkway or entryway to jazz up your home. These bushes act as a great small hedge with its bushy form. Add them to the borders of your home garden to keep those unwanted pests from eating your veggies.

How To Plant Crimson Pygmy Barberry in Bulk

Grow Crimson Pygmy 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.”

How To Water

After planting be sure to water deeply 1-2 times a week.

How To Fertilize

Feed the Crimson Pygmy Barberry in the spring once the last frost has passed. We recommend using our Elements Starter Plant Food in granular form.

How To Prune

This plant is rather easy to prune. Prune in the late summer or early winter. Go along its natural shape to clean it up - but be sure to wear gloves while pruning to keep those pesky thorns out of your hands!
