The Q&A Archives: Planting Barberry

Question: I have 2 barberry shrubs and I don't know if it is a Royal Burgandy or a Cherry Bomb. Currently they are about 1 foot high. How far apart should I plant them if I want them to be a somewhat barrier?

Answer: Royal Burgandy Barberry has purple foliage, black-red berries, and grows 2' tall and wide. Cherry Bomb has red foliage and red berries, and grows 3' tall and wide.

If you have Royal Burgandy, plant them on 2' centers and they will grow into one another; if you have Cherry Bomb, plant them on 3' centers.
