Barberries or Berberis is a very diverse, large genus from the northern and southern (especially Chile in South America) hemisphere with perennial, evergreen or deciduous, usually woody shrubs. Many species have very showy, axillary born flowers above fine foliage and ornamental, bright colored berries in autumn. Most species are easily grown in any humus-rich, well drained soil in partial shade to full sun.
Sow in autumn in any rich, well drained, sandy soil in pots outside. Most seeds of Berberis species require a cooling period for several months before they will germinate in late spring. Transplant in autumn or late spring.
All are USDA Climate Zone 6.
