Darwins Barberry Hedging Plants Description

This is a beautiful variety of evergreen Berberis (other evergreen Berberis or Barberry include Berberis stenophylla and Berberis juliana) with bunches of orange/yellow nodding flowers held on red stems in spring and small dark green prickly leaves (like tiny Holly leaves).

There is a bonus of blue/purple autumn berries and sometimes a second flush of flowers, but really we'd recommend this species for its spring colour and prickly evergreen leaves.

See our guide to Berberis hedging plants.

Further Information
Further Information

You’ll see our recommended planting densities for each size and root type listed in the product grid. We suggest that you use these as a guide, taking into consideration how long you’re willing to wait to see your finished hedge. As a rough indication bare roots can be planted at anything from 3 to 7 per metre and cell grown between 4 and 6 - the higher densities here would need to be planted in a double staggered row or zig-zag.

For more information on planting distances please see our planting density advice section.

Pruning Advice
Pruning Advice

Planting and pruning advice for Berberis Darwinii hedging. Berberis darwinii is quite fast growing and could easily make 3m if unchecked but it is also easy to trim and maintain to about 1.5m. Just cut back any long branches or neaten the overall shape in autumn when the berries have been eaten/fallen. It is fine in any well drained soil and sun or partial shade. Pruning should be done immediately after flowering.
