Barberry ‘Gold Rush’

SKU: 112779 Categories: ,


A very adaptable shrub, Gold Rush Barberry is an outstanding dwarf compact golden selection. It tolerates partial shade, and its vivid yellow color is not affected by lack of sunlight, however it does grow best in full sun. Produces tiny white flowers in the summer and red fruit in fall which contrasts nicely with the vivid foliage. Lovely when planted en masse or used as a low-foundation or hedge plant.
