Sunjoy Citrus Barberry (Berberis thunbergii ‘Koren’)

Sunjoy Citrus Barberry

Sometimes the best color display for your yard isn’t in the flowers, but in the leaves. Sunjoy® Citrus Barberry (Berberis thunbergii ‘Koren’ PP24,818) is a prime example of how you can bring brilliant, long-lasting color to your home this year, even without the benefit of flowers. It’s a hardy little shrub with small leaves that pack a big punch! The chartreuse foliage is a bright stand-out in any setting, providing a sunny burst of color from spring through fall.

Your Sunjoy® Citrus is a deciduous shrub with a naturally compact, rounded habit, but is amenable to pruning in the spring if needed. Deer leave it alone, but wildlife will enjoy it for the dense cover it provides. Sunjoy® Citrus is heat and drought tolerant as well as being at ease in urban environments. Plant several for a low hedge, or just one to brighten up a dark corner of your yard.

Sunjoy® Citrus is a Proven Winners shrub. An improvement upon the Golden Barberry, Sunjoy® Citrus adds even more vibrant foliage color, and does so on a hardy, easy-to-care-for shrub. Plant a few of these remarkable shrubs this year and you’ll add a one-of-a-kind splash of joyous sunshine to your home landscape.
