Darwins Barberry Hedging Plants Description
Darwins Barberry is an impressive variety of Berberis hedging. Other species from the evergreen Berberis or Barberry family, include Berberis stenophylla and Berberis julianae.) The foliage produced by Berberis darwinii is dark green and prickly, resembling tiny Holly leaves, along with bunches of orange-yellow nodding flowers held on red stems in spring. Berberis darwinii also produces blue-purple autumn berries and sometimes the second flush of flowers. However, Berberis darwinii is recognised and favoured for its spring colour and prickly green leaves.
Aside from the aesthetic appearance and this species being evergreen, Berberis darwinni is an excellent choice of hedging to keep intruders away from your property due to its prickly nature. Darwin Barberry is one of our recommended intruder proof hedging plants. Hedges Direct has a variety of intruder proof alternatives available on our website, or you can call us on 01257 263 873 or email us at [email protected]

Youll 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 youre 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
