Berberis Sunjoy Gold Pillar® Description

Sunjoy Gold Pillar® barberry wears wow factor from head to toe! It brings structure and vibrant color to practically any garden plot, whether along a busy polluted street, a sunbaked hot spot, or even in clay soil. All without you having to lift a finger! After it’s established it hardly needs a lick of maintenance, it actually prefers not to be pruned at all and keeps on thriving through drought. But its most charming trait is revealed late in the season – brilliant orange-red color in fall! So, if you’ve got a challenging spot in the garden consider this unexpected dazzler.

Special features: Cold hardy, Deer resistant, Drought tolerant, Easy care, Fall color, Foliage interest, Heat tolerant, Burn resistant, Multi-season interest

I ordered 3 of these. Nowhere did it mention they have thorns. I would not have bought them had I known this.
