Adaptable, but prefers well-drained soil.  Best in full sun.  Tolerates urban conditions like parking lots, street plantings.  Pruning is seldom needed; may be shaped in summer if necessary.

Looking for an easy-to-grow, small plant that's colorful all season?  This is it!  Sunjoy Mini Saffron has bright yellow foliage that shows hints of orange in the new growth.  It will turn orange-red in the fall.  Unlike other yellow-leafed barberry, it is very burn-resistant, and does well even in the heat of the summer.
