Barberry 'Crimson Pygmy' Characteristics
'Crimson Pygmy' are dwarf cultivars of the Barberry family. They typically grow to about knee height and the red color is highly ornamental. The flowers and berries that are produced are attractive to pollinators and birds. When the leaves fall and only the berries remain, the colors can lose their purple undertones and become bright red.
These low maintenance plants have few serious disease or pest issues. Powdery mildew can occur. The berries are not edible to human and may cause an upset stomach.
