Few people have probably heard of a phenomenon known rather morbidly as the widowmaker. Like so many tales, it originates from the dark and mysterious world of woods and forests. But it might just strike closer to home, especially if you have trees in your garden.
"Many thanks for the delivetry of our plant - a very nice specimen in perfect condition. We are so please with it, we shall be ordering another one today.." Thank you. M Brown
Makes a very useful low evergreen bush upto about 1 metre high. The very dark green prickly leaves have an attractive silver reverse side. During summer masses small single golden yellow flowers appear all over the bush.Introduced from China in late 1800's by Pere Farges
A really choice berberis for someone looking for that something a little different. Berberis dictophylla makes a good sized shrub upto about 2 metres. Attractive red young growth with a white bloom and fascinating white undersides to the mid green leaves.
