"Glowing" may best describe Berberis thunbergii 'Aurea'. This mid-sized deciduous shrub lights up the lower end of our lavender path much of the year. The leaves that are exposed to the sun are especially yellow, those that are in the shade are more chartreuse. There are thorns but they are soft enough that they bend easily to the touch.

Midspring.  5 ft. x 6 ft.

Yellow flowers

Sun, Part Shade     Zones 5, 6, 7, 8
