The Barberry 'Helmond Pillar' is a deciduous shrub that is known for its slender, columnar form and deep purple foliage. It is a popular choice for home gardens due to its easy care, low maintenance, and versatility.

The Barberry 'Helmond Pillar' grows to be about 3-4 feet tall and 1-2 feet wide. It has a dense, upright habit and is covered in small, spiny leaves. The leaves are green in the spring and summer, and turn a deep purple color in the fall. The shrub produces small, yellow flowers in the spring, but they are not particularly showy.

The Barberry 'Helmond Pillar' is a relatively low-maintenance plant. It prefers full sun to partial shade and well-drained soil. It is drought-tolerant once established, but it will benefit from regular watering during hot, dry weather. The shrub can be pruned to maintain its shape and size, but it is not necessary.

To plant a Barberry 'Helmond Pillar', choose a sunny or partially shaded spot with well-drained soil. Dig a hole that is twice as wide as the root ball of the shrub and amend the soil with compost or manure. Place the shrub in the hole and backfill with soil, tamping down gently to remove any air pockets. Water the shrub well after planting.

Water your Barberry 'Helmond Pillar' regularly, especially during the first year after planting. Fertilize the shrub in spring with a balanced fertilizer. Prune the shrub as needed to maintain its shape and size.

The Barberry 'Helmond Pillar' is a versatile plant that can be used in a variety of landscape settings. It makes a bold statement as an accent shrub, and can also be used in mass plantings, hedges, and borders. It is also a good choice for container planting.

Here are some additional tips for growing a Barberry 'Helmond Pillar':

  • Protect the shrub from frost during the winter months.
  • Be sure to inspect the shrub regularly for signs of pests or diseases, and treat them promptly if necessary.
  • Be patient! It may take a few years for the shrub to reach its full size and develop its full purple color.

With proper care, your Barberry 'Helmond Pillar' will thrive for many years and provide you with a beautiful and low-maintenance addition to your landscape.

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.

Please note that the plant will be shipped in its pot, securely fastened with multiple layers of clear tape to prevent any shifting or damage during transit. This ensures that the plant arrives to you with minimal damage, safely and securely. We have been employing this method for shipping plants for several years, occasionally using smaller pots for added safety and convenience during transit. It's important to understand that many plants enter a dormant state during the fall and winter months, resulting in the loss of most leaves and appearing dry or lifeless. This is a natural process, and come springtime, they will begin to regrow and thrive once again. Please be aware that due to regulations set by the Department of Agriculture, there are certain plants and sizes that we are unable to ship to California. We apologize for any inconvenience this may cause.
