Orange Rocket Japanese Barberry is primarily grown for its highly ornamental fruit. The fruits are showy crimson drupes carried in abundance from early to late fall. It has attractive salmon deciduous foliage which emerges red in spring. The small oval leaves are highly ornamental and turn an outstanding ruby-red in the fall. It features tiny clusters of buttery yellow flowers hanging below the branches in mid spring.

It is a dense multi-stemmed deciduous shrub with a more or less rounded form. Its relatively fine texture sets it apart from other landscape plants with less refined foliage. This is a relatively low maintenance shrub, 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.
