Rose Glow Barberry (Berberis thunbergii ?Rose Glow?) may be the most versatile of all landscape plants, at home in the garden, in hedges, against a foundation, as a barrier or as a dense shrubby groundcover for large areas. They are compact shrubs that grow with an attractive branching habit. Their smaller spatula-shaped leaves are distinctive, they have very showy red fruits which hang from the delicate branches, and almost all varieties have brilliant fall colors that set the standard for autumn landscape shrubs. In short, they have something to offer in every season. They grow best in full sunshine but will tolerate some shade. The only concern about growing barberry in containers is that the roots are subject to freezing during the winter months. You may want to insulate the pots or bury them in the ground during the winter months to keep the roots from freezing. Enjoy your new shrubs.
