Purple Compact Barberry Hedge Plant Description

Berberis thunbergii atropurpurea (Purple Berberis) is compact and slow growing, so they are ideal for low (ideal at up to 1m) but prickly hedges and are a very good option as an alternative to Box (Buxus sempervirens hedging) - especially if you have Box blight in the garden. You can see heaps of low growing hedging plantsin our dedicated section.

Berberis thunbergii atropurpurea has purple leaves. Prince Charles has a Purple Berberis hedge in one of the garden rooms at Highgrove! Berberis thunbergii atropupurpurea is deciduous and boasts yellow flowers in spring and orange fruits adorn their branches in late autumn. They are tough, easy to grow hedging plants which do well in virtually any soil and situation including coastal, though they do like sun or partial shade. See all of our guide to Berberis hedging plants.

For an alternative, slightly taller purple/red leafed prickly hedge, take a look at Berberis Red Leaf or, for a variegated pink/cream leaf, try Berberis Rose Glow. See also our entire range of evergreen hedging plants, hedges with berries and our hedging with colourful foliage.

Pot grown plants are available all year round. Bare roots are only available from november to late April/early May.

If a species of Berberis isn't exactly what you are looking for in a hedge, we have lots of alternatives and suggestions for all types of planting situations and feature preferences on our Choosing the Right Species page.

Further Information
Further Information

You’ll see our recommended planting densities for each size and root type listed next to the products below. 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. Prices shown are the price per plant unless otherwise stated.

Pruning Advice
Pruning Advice

Berberis thunbergii atropurpurea hedge trimming should be done immediately after flowering.
