I probably post a photo of these Rosey Glow Barberrys every fall, but the color quite takes my breath away. So bright and vivid in person the camera can't capture it.
I don't have that one, but I planted three dwarf burning bushes this summer. They've got that same fiery red color in late autumn just before all the leaves hit the ground. Little pops of color (or large in your case) make fall much more bearable knowing that winter will be here soon.
Wow! my rosey glows don't even get close to that color....now the burning bushes could compete or my spirea..........
Mine are more a mottled cream and burgundy color.
Whoever named it "Rosey Glow" wasn't kidding! You are so lucky to have its "glow" light up your yard!
WAAAAAAAAAAAAAA!!!! They've banned both barberry and burning bush in NH. I have a couple planted, but I'm stll crying over the fact I can't get more! Your barberry is spectacular!
Yes, they are the mottled cream and burgundy color in Spring and then in Summer they add a touch of pink.
I just planted a Rosey Glow last year but it is so tiny it needs a few years under it's belt before it will look like anything. Barberries were banned here for a number of years, some varieties are back on the market now.
