Growing and Maintenance Tips
Barberries can adapt to many different soil types but do require well drained soil. Once established they can tolerate mild drought conditions. 'Rosy Glow' prefers full sun but will also grow in part shade. In part shade the colors of the bush will fade to an almost solid green color with red and pink accents.
