Barberry shrubs are a great way to add colorful foliage to your garden for three seasons of the year. Sunjoy® Gold Pillar Barberry provides an ever-changing palette of color. The new growth in spring emerges a soft orange that quickly matures to the bright golden shade of its name. The autumn brings another color change to a fiery reddish orange before the leaves drop for the winter. The compact columnar shape makes this shrub a gorgeous focal point in any foliage-forward planting scheme.

Gold Pillar Barberry has all of the outstanding traits of previous cultivars. It is highly disease and pest resistant, as well as nearly impervious to browsing deer. The brilliant yellow color of the foliage is not prone to fading or scorching and looks great paired with hot season annuals in a container planting. The inconspicuous flowers of Sunjoy® Gold Pillar are sterile, ensuring that this shrub is not invasive and can be planted in the home garden with no worries. 

Sunjoy® Gold Pillar Barberry Care

Provide full sun and well-draining soil for Barberry to thrive in your garden. This shrub is not particular about soil pH or texture and grows well in soil with low fertility, like in new housing developments or public spaces. Mulch the root zone early in the spring with a 2-3 inch layer of organic compost to boost fertility in the soil and ensure moisture retention near the roots. Water newly planted Barberry 1-2 times a week with one inch of water in total. This will help the shrubs get off to a good start and form a strong and healthy root system.

Gold Pillar Barberry has a naturally compact shape that requires very little pruning. Early in the spring is a good time to lightly prune away any winter-damaged branches. Barberry can be cut back severely to rejuvenate the overall shape. This intense pruning needs to be done early in the spring so that the plant can recover in time for winter dormancy. Barberry is a deciduous shrub whose leaves can be left to decompose in place if they are healthy. Any diseased or pest-infested leaves need to be removed in the fall and disposed of in the trash or burned. This helps to break the reinfestation cycle for the following year. 

Sunjoy® Gold Pillar Barberry Spacing

The mature height for Gold Pillar is 4 feet with a narrow spread of 2 feet. Space the plants 2 feet apart on the center when planting with other perennials or shrubs. Closer spacing of 18 inches can be used when growing Gold Pillar as an informal hedge. A pot with at least a 12-inch diameter can be used for potting up a young Barberry.

Restricted States: IN, MA, ME, NH, NY and VT.

Plant Addicts Warranty - 1 Year (Extra Purchase Required)

We encourage all plant lovers to purchase the Plant Addicts Warranty, whether you're a new gardener or an expert. There are many variables outside of anyone's control that can cause a plant to die.

The warranty is purchased on a per plant basis and must be purchased at the same time as the plant(s). We will cover 100% of the price of the plant, but the warranty does not cover shipping costs. SImply let us know if your plant has died within 1 year of receiving it and we will get you a new one shipped out as soon as possible (depending on the time of the year and availability).

Guarantee and Warranty

Plant Shipping

Below are some factors we consider when determining when to ship the plants depending on the timing of the order.

Winter to Early Spring

We ship only when it's warm enough to plant in your growing zone.
Sometimes plants aren't completely ready to sell and ship in early spring. We will wait until the plants are ready before shipping so you don't get a subpar product.
For Southern plants we will be able to ship much earlier than plants coming from our northern nursery.

Summer

If there is extreme heat we may delay shipping for a week or several weeks.
We review what areas the plants are traveling through as well as your location.

Fall into Winter

We’ll ship plants out all the way up to the end of the fall planting season!

Winter

Get your order in early to reserve your plants for Spring planting!

Once your plant is shipped you’ll receive an automated email with tracking information.
