Gardeners with clay soil may wish to consider 'Crimson Pygmy Dwarf Japanese Barberry' as a foundation plant or low hedge, as it can adapt to a variety of soil conditions. This low-maintenance plant tops out around two feet tall and three feet wide, providing a compact shrub with burgundy red foliage in the spring and summer, then blazing into brilliant red in the fall before losing its leaves. At that point, bright red berries may remain on the spiny stems, adding winter interest and food for the birds. Drought tolerant once established and generally ignored by deer, 'Crimson Pygmy Dwarf Japanese Barberry' is a perfect candidate for rock gardens or woodland gardens, along borders, in mass plantings, or as a low hedge.
