Limoncello Barberry is a tidy, compact branching deciduous shrub valued for its vibrant foliage that grows full to the ground.  The leaves emerge striking chartreuse with irregularly placed dotted red margins in spring, which then gain varying shades of orange, yellow, and red in fall. Both flowers and fruit are unnoticeable.  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.*
