Berberis thun­bergii ‘Golden Torch’

NZ Gardener - - In Season -

This is part of the RHS trial and has a lovely up­right style of growth. I have not been able to find it in New Zealand but the Pol­ish va­ri­ety ‘Maria’ is sim­i­lar and avail­able here. I’m not sure if be­head­ing this to force it into a hedge will bring out the best in it, and of course you will have to con­tend with prick­les! Be­ing de­cid­u­ous, there will be bare brown branches through win­ter, but what a cheery glow in spring.
