Berberis Sunjoy® Tangelo Description

This colorful, medium size deciduous Shrub has stunning orange leaves like honey mixed with sunshine for a captivating sweet glow all spring, summer and fall.

Japanese Barberry is a thorny shrub with a carefree habit. Thorny shrubs make for a formidable barrier plant for pets, people, or anything you wish to keep in or out of bounds.

Tangelo forms a hedge that grows up to 48 inches tall which can be if desired, sheared to any size & shape.   Inconspicous yellow flowers appear in spring.

Its bright orange leaves create great contrast in the garden & provide the perfect backdrop to edge driveways, sidewalks or anywhere you desire a splash of color.

Sunjoy® Tangelo is a Proven Winners® Color Choice® plant.  Plants must meet rigorous testing to be included in this group.

Tangelo Barberry is the perfect companion to long-blooming KnockOut Roses, Ornamental Grasses, & other Flowering Shrubs!
