Product Description

'Crimson Pygmy' (syn. atropurpurea 'Nana') Dense, low spreading, compact form and dark burgundy foliage. AWARDS: AGM, Zone 4, 18-24 inches, gr 1.5, Full sun. Smaller, dwarf version of the original Red Barberry. Nice dark blood red leaves keep their color all the way from spring till frost. Has a neat, compact, round growth habit. Makes an excellent foreground plant, or for use as a smaller, lower growing border / edging planting. Makes a great little low growing "barbed fence" when planted in hedge type applications ( approx 2-3 ft apart ). Maintains a generally rounded, globe shape naturally, but looks especially nice & neat if kept trimmed throughout the growing season. Burgundy red color is best displayed in full sun planting locations....will fade to green with touches of burgundy in shady spots, or locations with less than adequate sun exposure. Fall color is more of a bright red than burgundy, with leaves eventually falling off in late fall - exact timing will vary depending on just what part of the country you are in.

    The plants are shipped by the USPS. Even though the tracking info showed the day of delivery, the plants actually arrived the next day. I placed them in a tray of water and they were so robust the next day. The plant is healthy and beautiful. The 4-inch pot was just the right size. In time, it will mature and spread out. Love the color!

    These plants come small (like described) but are healthy. They are a great addition to landscaping. I love that they are small so you can morph them into what I want as they grow.
