Helmond Pillar Barberry is a narrow columnar branching deciduous shrub valued for its vibrant foliage that grows full to the ground.  The small leaves emerge in spring as a dark reddish-purple against its thorny red-brown stems.  Helmond Pillar Barberry has unnoticeable tiny yellow flowers bloom in spring that gives way to small clusters of fruit that last after the foliage falls.  Best color in full sun and well-drained soils.  Drought and deer resistant.  

Barberry has known use of the root bark as an anthelmintic, antiseptic and febrifuge, and can be used orally as a treatment for various enteric infections.*
