Crimson Pygmy has a purple leaf color and grows best in partial shade or partial sun to full sun and is a semi-evergreen. Attractive orange, red and yellow fall colors.

This shrub grows slowly but transplants easily. Japanese Barberry can be sheared and used as a hedge plant. This plant is considered mostly allergy free and causes little or no allergy problems in most people.
