Barberry has really nice fall color as their leaves change.
Berberis thunbergii ‘Concorde’
This dwarf barberry almost has the color of concord grape jelly that we buy at the store, does it not? A beautiful rich purple, this varietal starts with small yellow flowers in the spring that the leaves quickly overtake. In the fall, the hue will become more reddish before the leaves drop, adding more variety before the dark thorny stems stand behind in tribute before the next growing season kicks off again. Deer resistant, don’t let the thorns scare you! Mixing with the other dwarf barberries will bring some interesting color to any landscape.
