Berberis densa - BSWJ14880

Pot Size: 5 litre
Price: £50.00
Although the most remarkable attribute of the shrub was the dense inflorescences hence its epithet. The yellow-orange flowers were so plentiful as to almost hide the foliage, whereas the heavy fruit does hide the foliage. A striking plant where we found this colourful species in February of 2016 on the Cerrito Paramo near the Venezuelan border in north-eastern Colombia at over 3,200 m. The foliage was distinct in being only spine-tipped on the flowering stems, as opposed to the spiny almost holly-like foliage on the remainder of the shrub. Easily grown in sun or light shade in any type of fertile drained soil, shelter from freezing winds.
