The Q&A Archives: Cherry Bomb Barberry

Question: Please help! I am looking for a Cherry Bomb Barberry. I cannot find a local Monrovia dealer that carries this plant. Please tell me where I can find one.

Answer: Thank you for asking. Monrovia plants are sold nation wide. Unfortunately, I have no way of checking which nurseries or garden centers would have this particular plant in stock on hand, expect to have it later in the season, or be able to obtain it for you. They are independent stores and each carries its own selection, so you need to check with them directly and see. There is a dealer locator at the web site that is searchable by zip code and provides contact information.
If they do not have it, perhaps they can suggest a susbtitute. There are several red leafed barberries, for instance "Crimson Pygmy" is fairly similar although just a bit smaller.

Otherwise, you might try mail order. Here are some nurseries that tend to carry a good selection of shrubs. (These are listed in no particular order.)


Greer Gardens

Fairweather Gardens


I'm sorry I can't be more specific for you and I do hope you find what you are looking for. Best of luck with your search!
