Rose Glow Japanese Barberry

Berberis thunbergii 'Rose Glow'

A spiny deciduous shrub that forms a rounded, slow-growing bush with striking, purple-red foliage. New growth emerges variegated, mottled in tones of pink, white, and green, maturing to its final dark color. Bright red berries appear in fall through winter, and provide a food source for local birds. Adds warm contrast to the landscape, performs well as a bold color accent in a border or hedge.

Common Nursery Plant Forms

We use plant forms to describe how a plant has been grown in our nursery. Here are some common nursery plant forms explained.

A bush or multi refers to a shrub or small tree grown with multiple stems.

A standard has been trained to have a single trunk.
Many bush/multi plants are also available in standard form, so be sure to check the form when you add plants to your cart.

A column refers to a tree or shrub grown into a tall, narrow shape.

An espalier is a plant trained to grow in a two-dimensional form against a trellis.

Staked plants will be tied to a wooden or plastic stake during the growing process. This technique is generally used on vines but is sometimes used for certain trees or shrubs.
