    Berberis ottawensis

    From £7.00

    Berberis ottawensis x Auricoma, also known as Berberis Red Leaf , is one of our most prickly hedging plants making it ideal for deterring intruders whilst providing rich colour to your garden. 

    Red Berberis (Berberis ottawensis x Auricoma) has stirking red leaves that shine through the spring and summer, turning a slightly purple shade in the autumn before loosing its leaves in the winter. Berberis ottawensis is not only known for its vivid colours but also its many thorns that make this hedging plant and shrub a great intruder deterrent - so be careful when planting! 

    Not only does it provide colour and security to your garden, it is also a great source of food for wildlife with its orange berries that will be seen in the spring time, it also provides great shelter.

    1. Select Root Type

    Bare Root 

    Bare roots are young plants that are only planted when they are dormant, from November to March (weather dependant). We lift bare root plants and despatch them during the planting season but they can be pre-ordered in summer to guarantee your stock. As they are cheaper to grow, they are one of our most affordable hedge planting options and the cheapest way to plant a hedge.

    Root Ball 

    Root ball plants are also seasonal stock as they can only be lifted when they are dormant, from November to March (weather dependant). These plants are scooped out of the ground like an ice-cream using machinery to keep their root system intact and wrapped in bio-degradable, hessian sacks.  They are mature plants that provide dense coverage very early on, ideal for when you need a thick hedge quickly. Root ball hedging plants give an instant effect and are a cheaper alternative to instant trough grown hedging. 

    Pot Grown 

    Pot grown plants can be planted year round and they are our mose convenient option of hedging plants. They come in a wide range of sizes, from 10cm to 2.5m so they're suitable for the majority of planting requirements. From small 2L shrubs to large 15L extra tall hedging, there will be a pot grown plant for any garden type. 

    Instant Hedging 

    Our Instant Hedging is grown in troughs or bags that measure 50cm-1 metre in length and carefully clipped during the growing season to create a dramatic, instant hedge effect. If you are looking for a quick fix or an instant impact, Instant Trough Grown hedging is the solution for you.
