Berberis Claret Red is a hybrid of Berberis darwinii and Berberis empetrifolia. It’s a medium-sized, vigorous, rosemary-like evergreen shrub with claret red stems. Its narrow, rigid leaves are bronzy-green when they are young, and turn dark green with blue-grey undersides as they mature. Clusters of beautiful, rich orange and red flowers appear in mid to late spring and are followed by black-red fruits in autumn. Berberis Claret Red can grow in any type of soil, as long as it is moist and well-drained, which excludes waterlogged soils. It prefers full sun to partial shade. It’s a very adaptable and low maintenance plant. Berberis Claret Red is great for hedges and screens. It can be used in flowerbeds as a colourful background for small flowers, and along patios and walkways as natural edging. It’s a perfect addition to any cottage, informal or wildlife garden.

Arundel Arboretum is a shrub and tree retail nursery with over 40 years of experience.

About Us

During this time, we have developed a large stock of trees, mature evergreen shrubs, conifers, Japanese maples, cedars and olives. What sets us apart from a generic garden center is solid unwavering focus on trees and some bigger shrubs. You will find thousands of trees, hundreds of varieties and lots of experts who are working on the nursery and more than willing to help you to choose a plant for you.

What you will not find is hot tubs, garden furniture and plastic garden gnomes. In a nutshell, trees is what we know and trees is what we do, and only trees (and some shrubs to go with the trees).
