“Golden Ruby® Barberry (Berberis thunbergii ‘Goruzam’) was planted in our landscape last spring. Little did we know at that time what a hot and extremely dry summer we’d have.
As a fairly shallow-rooted shrub in its first year, it was certainly challenged by the less than stellar growing conditions. It got regular watering just as everything did, but I worried that by fall it would do what some barberries do – lose foliage and look as if it were dying. Not this one!
It looked good all the way through fall and I’m looking forward to enjoying its beautiful gold-tipped burgundy foliage again this year – the reason I chose it in the first place.”
