Ornamental Features

Sunjoy Todo® Japanese Barberry is primarily valued in the garden for its ornamental globe-shaped form. It has clusters of gold flowers hanging below the branches in late spring, which are interesting on close inspection. It has attractive deep purple foliage with hints of black which emerges red in spring. The small glossy oval leaves are highly ornamental and turn outstanding shades of scarlet and burgundy in the fall.

Landscape Attributes

Sunjoy Todo® Japanese Barberry is a dense multi-stemmed deciduous shrub with a more or less rounded form. Its relatively fine texture sets it apart from other landscape plants with less refined foliage.

Planting & Growing

Sunjoy Todo® Japanese Barberry will grow to be about 24 inches tall at maturity, with a spread of 24 inches. It tends to fill out right to the ground and therefore doesn't necessarily require facer plants in front. It grows at a medium rate, and under ideal conditions can be expected to live for approximately 20 years.

This shrub does best in full sun to partial shade. It is very adaptable to both dry and moist growing conditions, but will not tolerate any standing water. It is not particular as to soil type or pH, and is able to handle environmental salt. It is highly tolerant of urban pollution and will even thrive in inner city environments. This particular variety is an interspecific hybrid.
