The Barberry Genus has both deciduous shrub and evergreen shrub species.
The deciduous species ( such as Berberis thunbergii, and Berberis vulgaris) are popular for their attractive autumn color sequence, turning pink or red before falling.
The evergreen species from China ( such as Berberis candidula, and Berberis verruculosa), have leaves that are brilliant white beneath, making them uniquely attractive.

Some species ( such as Berberis thunbergii ) are popular landscape garden shrubs, grown for their ornamental leaves, flowers, and red or blue-black berries.
Barberry's can be planted in the landscape for crime prevention, because of their many spiny thorns and dense growth habit makes a very effective impenetrable barrier. These shrubs can be planted as hedges or around vulnerable windows, or any other place people should not be.
