Compact coral barberry (Berberis  × stenophylla 'Corallina Compacta')
BER-ber-iss ex sten-oh-FIL-lah
Genus:  Berberis
"Thorny but irresistible" best describes this low-maintenance, elfin barberry. Tiny leaves are smothered in coral-colored buds opening to bright yellow-orange spring flowers. These, in turn, produce silver-frosted, blue-black berries in fall. 'Corallina Compacta' is evergreen, tolerates most soil types, and is pest-free and drought tolerant once established.
Noteworthy Characteristics:  Colorful flower buds and blooms on a compact plant; attractive berries; evergreen; adaptable.
Care:  Provide full sun to partial shade and most any well-drained soil. Tolerates light shade and drought, but not wet soil.
Problems:  Infrequent.
