Description

Outstanding variegation.

Neat, clean, colorful variegation makes Sunjoy Sequins® barberry a standout in the landscape. Leaves are splashed white and green, and develop very showy pink tones as the season progresses, making the plant a patchwork of pink by autumn. More shade tolerant than other foliage barberries, yet has never shown any burn in our trials.
