Add barberry Orange Rocket to your outdoor space for visual impact in both form and colour. Otherwise called a Japanese berberis this upright and dramatic shrub plant looks like an exploding rocket firework in your garden beds. Alternatively, you can plant it up in a container with rich, moist to wet soils.

In spring the leaves are orange and coral in colour and an abundance of small yellow flowers appear. As the summer continues the leaves intensify in colour and become wine-coloured turning dark red in autumn before falling to the ground leaving a dramatic silhouette of branches in the winter.

Returning every year, this colour-changing fully-hardy woody plant is dramatic on account of its upright and firework-like branches.

Useful tip

We recommend that you plant in containers and plant neighbouring winter and spring-flowering bulbs. The bright and cheery flowers of snowdrops and daffodils complement the coral-coloured leaves in March and April. Barberry Orange Rocket is perfect for growing beneath deciduous trees too as an understorey of colour and intriguing leaf form.

How you will receive your plants: 

Selected by our team of experts and sent from our nursery, you will receive your plant in a pot, ready to plant out. 

Can’t plant straight away? 

Place the pot in a sheltered spot outdoors and water regularly to keep the soil moist. 

Planting in the ground: 

Dig a hole slightly wider than the rootball of the plant. Place the plant in the hole so that it sits at the same level in the ground as it did in the pot. When backfilling, mix in a soil improver such as well-rotted farmyard manure. Firm the soil around the plant and water well. 

Planting in containers: 

Choose a pot with good drainage holes. Place stones or crocks (bits of broken pottery) at the bottom of the pot to stop the drainage holes clogging up. Use a good quality compost. Feed and water container-grown plants regularly.
