Berberis darwinii

Berberis darwinii
Berberis darwinii
Toward the end of winter in the Pacific North West, when the weather is still unsettled and grey, we are always cheered by the orange glow of the flowers of Berberis darwinii. We give thanks to Charles Darwin who discovered the evergreen shrub as the name suggests and to plantsman William Lobb who brought the plant back to Europe in 1849. Humans are not the only ones who are cheered by the bloom. It seems the bees also are delighted with their bounty. An ideal candidate for adding to moss animal topiaries. Later in the season, the birds arrive to eat the small fruits. These are edible and some people harvest them for jams and jellies. Because it is evergreen as well as thorny, this barberry is often used as a hedge or barrier. The shrub committee of the Great Plant Picks program of the Elisabeth C. Miller Garden also admired it and recommend it as a great plant for Northwest gardens. Seasonality is March, April. Measurements are around 8 feet x 6 feet Colors are Orange flowers Hardiness Zones: 7, 8, 9
Price: $19.00
