The young foliage of Berberis thunbergii 'Rose Glow', held on arching branches, is initially purple, then developing pink, cream and silver variegation which last all summer before the autumn foliage turns glowing red before dropping (both are deciduous).
They have small pale yellow flowers (tinged red) in late Spring and bright red berries in Autumn. The variegation is improved by pruning annually in autumn/winter. These grow by about 25cm pa. Both of these varieties of Berberis are good in poor soils, and will do well in most sites other than very wet and full shade.
will grow to 1.2m
