Quick Overview:

Wintergreen Barberry is often grown for its dense branches and has extremely sharp, three-parted spines which can help turn a group of plants into a formidable barrier hedge.
This evergreen shrub grows 4?-6? and 6?-8? wide. It features alternate, simple, lustrous dark green leaves 2 to 4? long and 0.5? wide. They are arranged 5 to a whorl and have spiny, serrated edges. During the fall the leaves can turn a pleasing wine-red color.

Abundant yellow flowers first appear in April and extend into late May and have a faint buttery scent. Flowers give rise to 1/3? diameter oval bluish-black berries which are attractive to song birds during the winter.

This plant is attractive to bees, butterflies and/or birds.
