Berberis thunbergii ‘Rose Glow’ is a lovely choice for either a hedge or a stand-alone accent. The new foliage is deep red with pink, white and green streaking in the spring. These eye-catching variegations fade to attractive rosy bronze as the season progresses, and then during fall and winter, bright red berries present themselves. The prickles make this plant substantially less attractive to deer than most, and when grown as a hedge, they present a challenging barrier to cross. Plant Berberis ‘Rose Glow’ in areas with good drainage and in full sun for the best display of color.
