Berberis Hedging

Berberis plants make great hedges! All are very prickly, we grow types with colourful summer foliage as well as Berberis darwinii and Berberis x stenophylla that are evergreen.

Berberis hedges are an excellent option for a variety of landscaping projects. Berberis is widely recognised as an excellent hedging solution for security purposes, thanks to its prickly aesthetic. It can also grow up to four metres high, making it ideal for bringing an element of privacy to a home or building.

With a wide variation of the deciduous and evergreen plant species, up to 500 in fact, Berberis can be grown almost anywhere, and grows best in the open sun, although some shade is advised for certain species. Berberis hedging plants can be well suited to a variety of landscapes that other hedging varieties may find difficult, from chalky soils to colder, more exposed locations inland.

As well as their privacy and security traits, Berberis hedges are also popular for a number of more visually-pleasing reasons. The vibrant colours that bloom throughout the year makes Berberis an excellent plant for back borders in the flower bed, as well as for typical hedging solutions. Different varieties also offer a number of other features, from berries to decorative leaf characteristics, giving some seasonal variety to every landscape. We offer a broad selection of sizes when it comes to Berberis hedging plants, meaning that you are sure to find one that suits your needs.
