Gardening in mostly deep shade in Zone 6. My passion is adding more native plants to my landscape & clearing out the foreign invasives.

For a while I've puzzled over whether Barberry is as invasive as they say because I never see it spreading out of bounds. Well here's my proof: a seedling right under Mary Jo's office window #killitwithfire

Mine have just gotten bigger but have never become invasive. 🤔

I have one I have to dig up, chopping it didn't work! But man is it painful.

But here's the rest of the story on this bush with the gorgeous #fallcolor -- #wickedspines and foul-tasting, toxic berries. Oh, and it's invasive as crap. #killitwithfire

Even the individual leaves, outlined in redgold, are ravishing. #fallcolor #greatcolor

Another barberry action shot from the bank of bushes planted at my optometrist's office. #greatcolor #fallcolor

I was struck by the #splitpersonality effect of the new swatches of bright leaves against the darker ones. .
