The Golden Rocket Barberry Shrub attains a unique columnar shape, boasts striking golden foliage that turns a brilliant shade of scarlet in autumn and truly shines as an accent shrub planted among purple leaf plants and in the hard corners of landscapes. The quality that truly sets this shrub apart is the narrow form of growth, similar to a Sky Pencil Japanese Holly, instead of the mounding globed shape most barberries attain. Bright yellow leaves are enjoyed through spring and summer, which turn to a vivid scarlet red in the fall before finally falling completely in winter. The Golden Rocket Barberry lives most comfortably in USDA Cold Hardiness Zones 4 to 8 and reaches a mature height of 5 ft. with a spread of 3 ft.
