Berberis thunbergii 'Neon' (PBR)
Living up to its name 'Neon' is a vibrant Barberry that changes colour with the seasons. New, bright orange shoots appear in spring, before developing into deep red leaves with yellow "halo" edges, as though they are illuminated from below. Compact, upright habit perfect for patio containers.
Any average garden soil, avoiding wet areas. Prune in winter as required to maintain shape and size.
Water thoroughly or stand pot in a container of water for half and hour before planting. Dig a hole twice the size of the root ball. Remove the pot, place the plant in hole so that it is level with the surrounding ground, and re fill firming as necessary. Keep well watered in dry weather. Feed in spring with a general fertiliser
