Berberis thunbergii Orange Ice

Product ref: S2T007

Availability: Out of stock

When grown in a sunny spot, the foliage colour of this dazzling deciduous shrub emerges a bright orange-red before turning a deeper ruby, so it really catches the eye when woven through the border or potted up on the patio. It has a naturally slender and upright habit, so it also lends itself well to forming a low(ish) hedge or screen. As well as the colourful foliage, Berberis 'Orange Ice' also produces small yellow flowers in spring and early summer, and these are followed by red berries in the autumn. Keep in mind that in shadier spots, the foliage colour will not be as vivid so if you want it to light up like a torch, it really should be grown in full sun. In autumn, be prepared for dazzling scarlet shades before the leaves fall for winter. Strong, bushy plants supplied in approx 2-3 litre containers.
