Berberis thunbergii ‘Concorde’ (S-0754)

Each $9.75

AVAILABLE JANUARY 2021

<i>Berberis thunbergii</i> ‘Concorde’

Draped in deep maroon velvety purple foliage, this splendid diminutive shrub maintains a dense rounded slow growing profile. Small bell-shaped yellow flowers, enhanced by warmly colored sepals, sparkle against opulent deciduous leaves, eventually giving way to a wintertime showing of bright red berries. Perfectly sized for edging, responsive to pruning and unyielding to deer or drought, ‘Concorde’ is a refined and easily maintained contender for containers, border frontage, low hedges and knot gardens, especially when paired with silver and green companions.

Blooms March–April.

Size: 18" – 2' 0" high x 18" – 2-1/2' wide.

Hardy to zone 4.

<i>Berberis thunbergii f. atropurpurea</i> ‘Helmond Pillar’

Imprinting a remarkable architectural aspect upon the landscape, this adaptable cultivar sculpts bold upright columns of rounded deep reddish purple leaves, which transmute brilliant red fall color. Multiple staunch ruddy brown stems sport richly colored deciduous foliage, plus clustered small yellow flowers followed by shiny bright red persistent berries. Utilized as a first-rate hedge or small screen, ‘Helmond Pillar’ is equally at home in an urban setting or a country garden, where it can frame a vista or entrance way, or stand sentinel in the mixed border.

Blooms April–May

Size: 4' 0" – 5' 0" high x 12" – 2' 0" wide.

Hardy to zone 4.

PLEASE READ THIS NOTICE PRIOR TO PLACING YOUR ORDER!

Due to the unprecedented influx of orders, phone calls and emails that we have been receiving, our small family run business of not quite a dozen people, is sadly behind at this time. The combination of extremely cold weather in January and February, as well as vendor plant shortages and unanticipated delays, are adding to our difficulty of assigning ship dates in a timely fashion. Please know our team is working diligently to catch up. Orders are currently taking up to 5 weeks to review. To be as fair as possible to our valued customers, we are processing orders in the order they were received. We appreciate your patience and hope that you can accept our heartfelt apology for any inconvenience.
