Berberis julianae, Native to central China where it forms dense impenetrable thickets Berberis julianae was first described by Ernest Wilson in 1800. A commendable shrub of merit, it has strong stems with long toothed leaves which are bronze when young, turning deep green later. Masses of slightly fragrant bright yellow flowers appear in dense clusters in late spring. A handsome shrub to behold, however it really comes into its own when planted as a security hedge. Growth is dense and the stems are generously adorned with some of the largest thorns of any plant, up to 75cm long, rigid and sharp as needles. No doubt evolved to deter even the hungriest of marauding goats, you would need to be a determind trespasser to attempt a barrier of this Berberis! Needless to say it should be planted with caution where children are concerened. An attractive and worthy addition to the right location!
