Rose Glow Barberry

General Information

The remarkable, deep, rose-red foliage appears to glow on the Rose Glow Barberry!  Its leaves emerge in spring with a mottling of green and white.  The colors will remain more intense if planted in full sun. Inconspicuous, tiny white flowers emerge in clusters in spring. The Rose Glow Barberry is a mounded shrub with thorns that originated in the Netherlands.  In fall and winter, bright red berries add extra interest.
