Berberis thunbergii 'Starburst' is a striking variety of this popular, easy shrub, with a low spreading habit and fresh green leaves on pink-flushed stems becoming heavily mottled pink and white and turning bright glowing red in autumn. Clusters of pale yellow flowers opening from maroon buds in spring are followed by shiny blood red berries. Ideal in a shrub or mixed border, providing colour and interest throughout the growing season.

Height and spread 60-90cm by 1m (2-3ft x 40in). Thrives in most well-drained soils, with best foliage colour and berrying in full sun. Little pruning is required, but after 2 or 3 years cut a few of the oldest shoots down to the base after flowering to promote vigorous new growth.

British nursery grown.
