Barberry Shrub is a very low maintenance shrub that has many uses in your landscape. Here are 4 ways Barberry shrub can improve your landscape:
- If you would like to create a natural fence along your property line, Barberry shrub is a good choice. It provides color year-round, and it has thorns, which discourage deer and humans from crossing the natural fence of barberry shrubs.
- If you grow vegetables, bees love Barberry shrub! It blooms small yellow flowers in early summer, which attracts honey bees.
- Barberry Shrub produces red berries in the Fall, which the birds love! It also adds color to your Fall garden. To see Barberry Shrub in the Fall, click here.
