A sterile barberry - not invasive like other types!
We gave this outstanding new barberry the name Sunjoy Todo because it really does have it all: deeply colorful glossy foliage, bright flowers, a neat and useful habit, and absolutely no worries about invasiveness. Like other barberries, it offers low-maintenance color to sunny spots and is highly resistant to deer. Sunjoy Todo barberry is also unlike other barberries in that it is semi-evergreen, keeping the leaves on the ends of its branches all year-round for a touch of four season interest. Though the golden spring blooms do develop red berries, there is no seed within, as proven in multiple rounds of university testing. This ground-breaking barberry will be available in garden centers in spring 2019.
Top reasons to plant Sunjoy Todo barberry:

Barberry is a truly easy-to-care-for shrub and requires no pruning to maintain its neat shape. It may be trimmed in early spring if you wish, but do avoid cutting into any thick woody stems, as recovery is slow from such cuts.Fun Facts:
