Product Description

Vivid, Color-Changing Foliage Lasts for Months

Why Orange Rocket Barberry Shrubs?

The Orange Rocket Barberry delivers vibrant orange foliage that ages to vivid green and then ruby red in autumn. That means you get months of visual interest from the Barberry’s compact, vigorous silhouette, well-suited to planting almost anywhere.

Use the Orange Rocket in mass plantings, specimen plantings, or even in containers. This Barberry variety is especially versatile, especially since it boasts improved resistance to rust and tolerance to drought, pollution, deer, and dry soil. Nothing stands in the way or the Orange Rocket Barberry and its healthful, voluminous growth.

Why is Better

The best part? You get all of these benefits without the hassle. Because your Barberry is delivered with a healthier, more developed root system, you'll plant and forget your Barberry...until its unmatched color elevates your curb appeal, that is.

Unlike the Barberry selection at your local big-box retailer, your Orange Rocket arrives with better branching, ready to take off. But don't wait...order your own Orange Rocket Barberry Shrub today!

Planting & Care

1. Planting: Dig a hole large enough to accommodate your Rocket's root ball, backfill the soil and water to settle the roots.

Generally, the Orange Rocket prefers well-drained soil and full to partial sun (4 to 6 hours of sunlight).

2. Watering: Let your soil dry to the touch down to about 2 inches in between waterings. Once your soil is dry, give your Rocket Barberry a deep watering at the base.

3. Fertilizing: Fertilize your Barberry at the beginning of every spring with a well-balanced blend, and follow label instructions for best results.

Orange Rockets Rock!

I have to admit that I was pretty worried about ordering plants online. Boy, was I wrong! The plant arrived looking healthy and as good as anything that I would have purchased at a nursery. The orange rocket looked great and is thriving after about two weeks of being planted.
