Pruning: The Orange Rocket Barberry typically requires minimal pruning. However, if necessary, prune in late winter or early spring to remove any dead, damaged, or crossing branches. This encourages healthy growth and maintains the desired shape.

Fertilization: Fertilize the Orange Rocket Barberry in early spring with a balanced slow-release granular fertilizer. Follow the manufacturer's instructions for application rates and frequency to provide the necessary nutrients for vibrant foliage.

Winter Protection: In zones 5-10 primarily, the Orange Rocket Barberry exhibits excellent hardiness and can tolerate cold temperatures. Apply a layer of organic mulch around the base of the shrub in late fall to insulate the roots and protect them from freezing. Avoid excessive pruning in late summer or fall, as new growth may be vulnerable to winter damage.


To plant the Orange Rocket Barberry, choose a location with well-drained soil and full to partial sun exposure. Dig a hole that is slightly larger than the root ball and place the shrub in the hole. Backfill with soil, ensuring the plant is at the same depth as it was in the container. Firmly press the soil around the base of the plant and water thoroughly. Whether you plant it in a pot or in the ground, the Orange Rocket Barberry thrives in various settings, adding a burst of color and vertical interest to your outdoor space.

The Orange Rocket Barberry thrives in full sun to partial shade. Provide it with at least 6 hours of direct sunlight daily for optimal growth and vibrant foliage color. Water the plant deeply once or twice a week during the growing season, allowing the soil to dry slightly between waterings. Adjust watering frequency based on weather conditions, ensuring the soil remains consistently moist but not waterlogged.
