Berberis thunbergii ‘Orange Rocket’
The Orange Rocket Barberry delivers vibrant orange foliage that ages to vivid green and then ruby red in autumn. That means you get months of visual interest from the Barberry’s compact, vigorous silhouette, well-suited to planting almost anywhere.
Use the Orange Rocket in mass plantings, specimen plantings, or even in containers. This Barberry variety is especially versatile, especially since it boasts improved resistance to rust and tolerance to drought, pollution, deer, and dry soil. Nothing stands in the way or the Orange Rocket Barberry and its healthful, voluminous growth.
Dig a hole large enough to accommodate your Rocket’s root ball, backfill the soil and water to settle the roots.
Generally, the Orange Rocket prefers well-drained soil and full to partial sun (4 to 6 hours of sunlight).
Let your soil dry to the touch down to about 2 inches in between waterings. Once your soil is dry, give your Rocket Barberry a deep watering at the base.
Fertilize your Barberry at the beginning of every spring with a well-balanced blend and follow label instructions for best results.
