    • Wonderful plant- bought one of each color last Summer and they've performed beautifully, displayed great color and hardiness. Not fussy at all! Will buy more.

      Outstanding My favorite plant, I recommend to others all the time and explain the reasons why I like it so much.
    • This is such a fantastic plant, so hardy and easy to grow. It’s too bad you don’t have a good image of the fall color. It is so much prettier in the fall than the invasive burning bush and the color lasts for weeks.

      Above Average Superior performance, among my favorites, would recommend to others.
    • I purchased and planted 3 of these last summer in a mostly shaded spot. This year they are growing beautifully and have flowers that are attracting hummingbirds. I am so pleased with these that I am going to replace a barberry plant with these native species - would like to try the Kodiak Black. I have always had good luck with the plants I have ordered from Proven Winners and these were no exception. This is my go-to place for plants.
