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.

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.
