Berberis Julianae Hedging

Berberis julianae, Julians Barberry, is a dense, thorny shrub that makes great hedging. It has copper coloured young leaves and yellow flowers in spring, which ripen into black berries. The leaves turn green in summer and then flame red and orange in autumn, remaining on the branches until the following spring. Although it is not quite as covered in thorns as some of its relatives, each spine is longer and more ferocious than the other varieties which therefore makes it an impenetrable shrub of up to 3 metres tall. It is suitable for any soil and tolerates dappled shade. 

View our selection of berberis hedging or see our full range of hedging plants.

Berberis julianae hedge plants are only delivered bareroot, during winter (Nov-March).
All our hedge plants are measured by their height in centimetres above the ground (the roots aren't measured).

Spacing a Berberis julianae hedge: Plant Berberis julianae hedging at about 50cms spacing.

General description of Berberis julianae plants:History & uses of Julians Barberry: This species was brought to Britain from China by the prolific plant collector Ernest H Wilson in 1900.
