Deciduous. An upright and dwarf Japanese Barberry, Pow Wow has simply put, brilliant Autumn colour. The new foliage is a golden yellow, turning to a cream in summer. As Autumn approaches it puts on a stunning display of orange to red foliage on dark red stems. Plant in well-drained soil in a full sun to part shade position. Beware the 20mm long spikes along the stems. THEY HURT!!!
