The Q&A Archives: Concord Barberry

Question: I have seen Concord barberry but there was no information as to the amount of heat/direct sun it can tolerate or how large it gets. I live in SW OKlahoma. Thanks Emilie

Answer: Berberis thunbergii 'Concorde' is a petite plant, growing slowly to mature at about 18 inches tall and wide. It is extremely heat tolerant, rated into heat zone 8 with up to 120 days per year at temperatures over 86 degrees. It does well in full to partial sun. Your local nursery staff should be able to tell you more specifically what to expect depending on the growing conditions where you plan to plant it in your yard.
