The Q&A Archives: Berberis thunbergii 'Helmond Pillar'

Question: It seems that the landscape size of this shrub was noted at 3'-4' in height, and now the fact sheet states 6'. What is the most correct?

Answer: The ultimate mature size of your barberry will depend upon growing conditions. Under most landscape situations it will grow about 4' in height. It can reach 6' without pruning. If you want to keep the plant at 3-4', you'll want to prune it every year or two.

Best wishes with your barberry!
