Sunjoy™ Gold Pillar Berberis

2010-10-27_11-50-37_515a

Recently when I was walking through the greenhouses I saw some wonderful fall colors developing on many of our shrub varieties. One that really struck and amazed me at how much the color changed was the Sunjoy™ Gold Pillar Berberis. In the summer this Pillar has yellow foliage and the bright reds and oranges that developed for the fall were simply wonderful.

(Barberry) Sunjoy™ Gold Pillar Berberis is another outstanding Proven Winners® ColorChoice® shrub that is a must have for every landscape. Sunjoy™ Gold Pillar is similar in shape to ‘Helmond Pillar’, but with bright golden foliage and red new growth. The 3-4′ pillars of gold provide great garden architecture and look stunning in autumn as the foliage turns a blazing orange-red. It will not burn like other yellow leaved barberry.

Little Henry® Itea is one of those shrubs that gives you a great look in all seasons. The spring brings the bottle brush flowers and in the fall the dark red foliage is so striking.

(Sweetspire) Little Henry® Itea is a versatile, compact shrub that offers multi-season appeal. In early summer, butterflies and hummingbirds are attracted to a profusion of sweetly scented, white flowers that erupt over the mounding foliage. As the temperature cools in early fall, the foliage turns reddish orange and eventually changes to a brilliant blood red that is even more intense than a burning bush! Little Henry® is extremely versatile in the landscape. It prefers moist soils, but will even tolerate wet conditions. It will grow in full sun to full shade, and requires little pruning or other maintenance. A Proven Winners® ColorChoice® Flowering Shrub.
