Plant Finder: about Berberis julianae

Common names

Wintergreen barberry, Chinese barberry


Berberis julianae (Wintergreen barberry). This species is an upright evergreen shrub with leaves that are obovate to elliptic and are glossy deep green and turn red and orange in the autumn, staying on the shrub until the following spring. The flowers are borne in pendent racemes of yellow blooms in the early summer; they are followed by red fruits which ripen to black.


They are fully to frost hardy and will require sun or semi-shade in any soil except waterlogged soil. Watch out for the thorns.

Interest and use

Good for dense, impenetrable hedging up to 3 metres high, as the spines on the leaves are some of the sharpest of all Barberry varieties.
