Berberis thunbergii Admiration is a compact, dwarf version of this ever popular deciduous shrub, so valued for the brilliance of the foliage. The leaves emerge an orange/red in the spring and gradually develop an attractive, thin, golden leaf margin in summer. The tone of the foliage deepens further in autumn. The shrub bears small, scented yellow flowers which develop into attractive berries if planted in full sun.
Berberis thunbergii Admiration has been granted the RHS's Award of Garden Merit for all round excellence in the garden.
