Features

An improved version of the popular 'Crimson Pygmy' with vivid, dark red foliage that looks great from spring to fall.

This is an excellent plant for adding low-maintenance, season-long color to landscapes.   Use it for edging beds and borders, or as a mass planting.  It does not revert as does 'Crimson Pygmy' so is consistently compact and colorful.

Top reasons to grow Sunjoy Mini Salsa barberry:
