With its sexy foliage and cheery flowers Berberis x hortensis ‘Charity’ is an iconic garden plant!
“Laden with a multitude of fruits in October a bush from the near distance glows with intense scarlet like unto live coals of a charcoal fire.”
When I visit familiar gardens I will often visit certain specific plants through the year to see how they grow.
Any plant that gives colour and scent in winter must be worth growing.
This unusual evergreen is surprisingly easy to grow.
