Admiration Barberry is a delightful shrub that will work well in different areas of your landscape. It is a smaller size plant, growing to two feet tall and wide. It is great in beds, borders or even in mass planting for a wonderful burst of color. The foliage grows densely on the stems, giving the shrub a nice full appearance. In the spring, the foliage emerges to a bright red-orange color, edged in yellow. The color matures to a maroon-green color throughout the growing season. Once fall arrives, the leaves take on a nice red color.
Berberis thunbergii ‘Admiration’ grows to a height of 1 to 2 feet, with a similar spread. It is recommended for USDA climate zones 4 to 9. It can grow in full to partial sunlight. Admiration does best in well drained soils, with average amounts of moisture. Once established, it is said to have good drought tolerance.
