Elleme's Garden

Berberis darwinii

Genus: Berberis.

Species: Berberis darwinii.

I have this in the front garden. Bought when a thug ripped out the box bush there and a neighbour suggested that I tried 'nature's barbed wire' instead! Great for bees when in flower, and blackbirds love the berries.

Prune after flowering is over but try to conserve the berries for the birds.
