Maintenance Notes: 

Extremely adaptable, but prefers well-drained soil. This upright columnar selection does not require any pruning, but may be shaped in summer. Deciduous. Fertilize in early spring by applying a slow release fertilizer specialized for trees & shrubs. Follow the label for the recommended rate of application.

This is an easy way to add both vertical lines and bright color to your home landscape. Similar in shape to 'Helmond Pillar' barberry, but with bright golden foliage and red new growth. Bright orange-red autumn foliage is stunning. Proven to be burn resistant in side by side tests with other yellow leaved barberry.  Use Gold Pillar as a low-maintenance hedge or edging plant, or add it to a border as an specimen plant.
