Sweet and sparkling, the perfect touch of red!

Like the sweet red vintage it is named for, Lambrusco Barberry adds an eye-popping touch of color to any landscape.

The foliage emerges red and deepens to a rich burgundy as the season progresses. The red foliage is accented by tiny yellow flowers for added dimension.

Densely arranged leaves and a spreading habit make this a particularly useful landscape plant, which can be substituted for ‘Crimson Pygmy’ in colder climates since it is more cold-hardy.

Bred by Don Sellinger and introduced by Bailey Nurseries.

Here are three great reasons to grow Lambrusco:

  1. Bright red foliage deepens to a rich burgundy in the fall.
  2. Densely arranged leaves and spreading habits.
