Good foundation plant or accent for the garden, this evergreen shrub, to 3-5 ft tall x 3 ft wide but easily trimmed, has small, holly-like leaves, dark green and shiny, contrasting with the reddish brown stems. Spring flowers are light yellow, inverted cups, nearly 1" across; autumn berries are blue-black as the common name suggest. Easy in sun to light shade with some summer water. Frost hardy to 0F, USDA zone 7.

A rare Tibetian shrub with holly like spine toothed leaves and yellow 1" yellow flowers that are larger than the usual Berberis flowers. It forms a dense 2-3' rounded shrub with red young stems and after the flowers black fruits appear. Interesting.
