Product Information

Bring some vivid colour to your garden with a dazzling display from this fabulous new introduction.

A berberis with a purpose, 'Lutin Rouge' is a naturally compact type that can be used around the garden to highlight other plants or on its own as a feature plant in pots on the patio or decking - they look particularly striking as a pair either side of a path or when planted to the front of a border.

A deciduous plant, this berberis will lose all its leaves in autumn, refreshing its mantle in spring when fresh new foliage appears. New spring growth emerges a bright and captivating scarlet and matures to a rich wine-red as summer progresses. Older leaves fade to green, giving an almost two-tone effect later in the year.

Perfect for time-strapped gardeners, this very hardy, drought tolerant shrub needs virtually no maintenance once established, making it ideal for first-time gardeners too!

Supplied as an established plant in a 9cm pot, will grow to H45cm x W25cm. Will rarely produce flowers if at all, but its stunning colour more than makes up for that!

Care Information

Planting Advice for Barberry 'Lutin Rouge':

  • Winter hardy and low maintenance berberis prefers well-drained soil in full sun or semi-shade - if planting in full sun, keep the plant well-watered.
  • To plant, firstly water your potted plant well.
  • Dig a hole a little deeper and 3 x wider than the nursery pot.
  • Add a soil conditioner such as well-rotted manure to the earth removed from the hole if necessary.
  • Remove the plant from its pot and tease out a few of the roots.
  • Place your plant in the hole at the same level at the pot then refill the hole with the earth removed (backfilling).
  • Firm in the soil with your heel, avoiding the root ball and water well before adding a mulch around the base of the plant.

Aftercare Advice for your Berberis:

  • Keep plants well-watered, especially if grown in a pot, and feed with our specialist shrub feed

Pruning Advice for your Berberis:

  • Pruning is minimal and any damaged or misplaed branches can be removed in autumn. A light clipping will promote good colouring to the leaves the following year.
