Berberis thunbergii 'Rosy Rocket' (Japanese Barberry) is an upright, deciduous shrub with striking deep red leaves adorned with soft flamingo pink when young. Over time, the foliage matures to deep burgundy, creating an interesting bi-color effect. The leaf coloring deepens during the year, particularly in fall when the variegation gets more marked. Tiny, pale yellow flowers appear in spring, but they are insignificant in comparison to the foliage. They are followed by an abundant crop of bright crimson-red berries in the fall, which are attractive to birds and often remain on the spiny coral stems after the leaves have fallen, therefore extending the season of interest of this ornamental shrub through the winter. 'Rosy Rocket' is perfect for brightening borders or containers.
Note: The plant is shipped in its pot, firmly secured with several layers of clear tape, thereby avoiding any shuffling and moving during transit. The plant reaches you with minimal damage- very safe and secure. We have been shipping plants like this for several years (plant are sometimes shipped in smaller pots for safety and ease of shipping). Most plants go dormant in fall and winter and will lose most of their leaves - looking dead and dry - very normal. They will flush out in spring. We cannot send ship some plants and some sizes to California due to restrictions placed by department of agriculture.
