Golden yellow Barberry. A very useful plant for contrast with other foliage colors, 'Aurea' is very bright in a sunny location. The plant will grow wider with time to 3-4 ft wide and is tolerant to heat and drought. This deciduous shrub is thorny with small inconspicuous berries in late summer. Plant with 'Admiration' or 'Helmond Pillar' for a stunning design.
