Berberis thunbergii Atropurpurea is commonly known as 'Purple Barberry' and is an extremely popular hedge that displays vibrant deep purple foliage in spring along with red/yellow flowers. In autumn the leaves change from deep purple to a fiery red before falling off as this is a deciduous shrub. You also get rich red fruits in winter as this hedge is a great feeding source for all birds and wildlife. This hedge is excellent for birds to nest in due to the protective thorns that will also keep inturders at bay.

Purple Barberry will do fine in any type of soil and can be planted inland and coastal areas. Berberis grows at around 1-2 feet per year but can be pruned to a manageable size.
