Berberis thunbergii 'Golden Torch'

Barberry, Golden Torch

From early spring, when its bright yellow red tinged leaves begin to emerge, until the last days of autumn, when its golden leaves fall, Berberis thunbergii ‘Golden Torch’ will be a pillar of light in the garden. Placed near Colorful Conifers® or among garden perennials, it will add to the drama in your garden. Its narrow, upright form makes it useful in spaces requiring a small footprint or in containers on the patio or deck. ‘Golden Torch’ may enjoy some shade from intense summer sun and it prefers moist, well-drained soil.
