Grower Tips: 

Prune all varieties once before bud break, once during flushing, and once more later in the season to produce a balanced plant.

Barberry does not rebound quickly from severe shearing or pruning - do not cut into thick stems. Trim to shape only.

All Sunjoy® barberries are selected to require minimal pruning in order to take on desirable container presentation.

Watch for spider mites in Sunjoy® Tangelo, Citrus and Cinnamon. Check for aphids on all varieties.

Can be grown along with evergreens, as barberry requires similar conditions.

Potting a 2 ¼” liner directly to a 3 gallon is not recommended.

Vernalization: 
Cold Required
