Sunjoy Mini Maroon® Barberry is a Proven Winners edition that is new to us this spring of 2019. It's dark red color during the growing season is beautiful when contrasted with the foliage of its brother Mini Saffron. Dwarf Barberries can be used as short hedges and as colorful accent plants in any landscape. The Mini Maroon is especially resistant to summer leaf burn.

Joseph's Take

I've always used Dwarf Barberry and bright yellow Spirea as accent plants in a larger landscape. I will often plant groups of three to five of them near a sidewalk entrance or near large green Azaleas or Holly.  Both Barberry and Spirea love a hard trimming each winter. I always cut them back by half their size each year as this encourages a more vigorous and beautiful growth habit the following year.
