Berberis darwinii 'Compacta' is a usefully compact form of this popular, well-known evergreen, with small, holly-like leaves, red-bronze when new, and rich golden -yellow flowers opening from deep red-tinged buds in spring, followed by edible blue berries. Ideal for a shrub or mixed border. Berberis darwinii, native to Chile and Argentina, was first discovered by Charles Darwin in 1835 on the voyage of the Beagle.

Height and spread around 90cm by 90cm (3ft x 3ft). Thrives in any well-drained, fertile soil, in sun or light shade, sheltered from cold winds.

Can be trimmed after flowering to restrict size. If growing as a hedge, plant 45cm (18in) apart and trim after flowering.

Bee and butterfly friendly.

British nursery grown.
