Finally the flowers I have been waiting for!
By Happy Gardener

About Me Avid Gardener
Comments about High Country Gardens Berberis fendleri:
I had to move it because the original site had too much shade. In the new location, it gets at least 4 hours of full sun. It has grown well and is now well established. It can tolerate some draught. I had to wait three years for the first flush of flowers this year but oh what a show!
Bottom Line Yes, I would recommend this to a friend

I have 6 of these shrubs. One didn't make it and was promptly replaced by HCG and has almost caught up to the earlier planted specimens. Slow growing at first but are now showing accelerated growth in amended clay soil. Two sets of three shrubs planted in very different conditions; one set on east side of house and one set on west where they are blasted by heat & full sun (until my young Quercus buckleyi provides some partial shade) both sets are performing equally well. Somewhat open, lax form with arching branches, Very attractive ( I did not want a dense, dark, heavy look such as lilacs might give), pretty fall color.

GRACEFUL SHAPE AND BEAUTIFUL COLORING
from Jersey City New Jersey
This came smaller than I expected, but has grown a lot. The coloring in the winter and the spring were pretty. It is June 1 and it is not blooming yet, but that may be because it is only 5 Months in the ground here, in New Jersey . It fared well in the winter with no protection next to a wall. I think it will be a beautiful shrub. The staff recommended it to me.
hardy little shrub!
from Kanab, UT
the shrubs arrived healthy and made it through the winter just fine. Like all shrubs I have purchased from High Country Gardens, they are growing vigorously and I am 100% happy with the quality of the merchandise.

Bees Love This Plant
from Parker, CO
This is my favorite salvia. It grows well, will tolerate being both a little too dry or a little too wet. The bees love it. Tolerates my HEAVY clay soil. It flowers pretty much all summer and into the fall if you deadhead it regularly. The only problem I ever have with it, is it gets powdery mildew if it rains a lot. It always comes back the following year healthy though.
Very pretty native shrub

About Me Master Gardener
I really liked this shrub and was looking forward to having it in my garden. Unfortunately it died in its second winter. We had an especially cold winter in the denver area so possibly would do better in a more typical one. I'll try it again and hope it gets more mature before another suoer cold winter comes along.

Native to My County in NM
By Rebecca Treeseed
from Santa Fe County, NM
I bought 5 acres of pinon juniper woodland. Species diversity is low, possibly due to over 10 years of drought. I have been collecting seeds where I can; however have not seen Berberis fendleri even though it is listed in my county in NM. My plants arrived safe and healthy. I am grateful to High Country Gardens for providing these plants. I will come back for more shrubs and trees as they become available. My goal is to create a food forest for wildlife and myself, as well as for the areas around me that will receive free seeds from me through birds and other wildlife. Share the bounty!
To determine if a plant is sufficiently cold hardy, the USDA created numbered zones indicating winter low temperatures; the lower the zone number the colder the winter.
