Red Barberry hedging plants description Berberis Red Leaf (Berberis ottowensis x Auricoma) is a fast growing (up to 60cm pa), very prickly hedge, ideal for deterring intruders, which is hardy and grows well in virtually any soil, including seaside gardens. This variety has vivid red leaves through spring and summer, with a fiery display in autumn, before losing its leaves for winter (also consider Purple Beech for similar dark foliage). It has orange berries in spring. Berberis flowers on old wood so should be pruned soon after flowering so that the new growth can develop in time for the next season. Remove about one third of the older shoots at the base.
