Berberis thunbergii ‘Anna’ PBR

A Polish variety bred by Janusz Szewczyk at a nursery in Krzywaczka near Krakow, characterized by interestingly colored, two-colored leaves. Dwarf shrub with a compact, flat-spherical habit and a slow growth rate. After six years of cultivation, it reaches a height of about 30 cm. Numerous, raised stems, densely arranged next to each other. Blade-shaped, yellow leaves with a characteristic orange blush at the edges. Tiny yellow flowers appear in spring with the developing leaves. The fruit, in the form of small oval berries, turns red when it ripens. Tolerant to substrate type, grows well in average, well-drained garden soils and in sunny locations. Frost resistant variety (zone 5b), recommended for small gardens, growing in flower beds and planting in containers placed on balconies and terraces. A great plant for creating colorful compositions with other low shrubs and perennials.
