Description

Barberry rehabilitated.

It's easy to hate barberry; Berberis is considered invasive in many areas. As an industry we don't want to plant things that will become a problem.

But barberry came to be a popular landscape plant because it is a really useful option for challenging sites. Heat, drought - even deer are not a problem for this plant. I'm thinking of some businesses I've seen on busy streets - they want a landscape but whatever is there needs to tolerate air pollution and general neglect. In goes the barberry.
