Add barberry Orange Rocket to your outdoor space for visual impact in both form and colour. Otherwise called a Japanese berberis this upright and dramatic shrub plant looks like an exploding rocket firework in your garden beds. Alternatively you can plant it up in a container with rich, moist to wet soils.

In spring the leaves are orange and coral in colour and an abundance of small yellow flowers appear. As the summer continues the leaves intensify in colour and become wine-coloured turning dark red in autumn before falling to the ground leaving a dramatic silhouette of branches in the winter.

Returning every year, this colour-changing fully-hardy woody plant is dramatic on account of its upright and firework-like branches.

Useful Tip:

We recommend that you plant in containers and plant neighbouring winter and spring-flowering bulbs. The bright and cheery flowers of snowdrops and daffodils complement the coral-coloured leaves in March and April. Barberry Orange Rocket is perfect for growing beneath deciduous trees too as an understorey of colour and intriguing leaf form.
