Reignite the passion in your landscape with the lively colors of 'Fireball' Barberry! Its small, paddle-like leaves are a rich crimson shade which stays true all summer and then turns even darker in autumn. Aside from its stunning foliage, this RHS award-winning shrub boasts superior garden performance and is virtually indestructible. 'Fireball' isn't bothered by deer or pests, tolerates pollution, and thrives despite poor, clay soil and dry conditions. This dwarf shrub is very easy to grow, needing only well-drained soil to reach its full potential. It performs best in full sunlight, but does have some shade tolerance. Pro Tip: Trim back hard at an early age to encourage robust basal branching.
