Golden Rocket Japanese Barberry has attractive yellow foliage with hints of chartreuse which emerges coral-pink in spring on a plant with a vase-shaped habit of growth. The small oval leaves are highly ornamental and turn outstanding shades of coral-pink and in the fall. The fruits are showy orange drupes with red overtones, which are displayed from early to late fall. The rough brick red bark and coral-pink branches are extremely showy and add significant winter interest.

It is a dense multi-stemmed deciduous shrub with an indistinguished habit of growth. Its relatively fine texture sets it apart from other landscape plants with less refined foliage. This shrub will require occasional maintenance and upkeep, and can be pruned at anytime. Deer don’t particularly care for this plant and will usually leave it alone in favor of tastier treats.
