This a plant in our shade garden that always attracts the attention of the woody plant collector. Collected in Sikkim by Bleddyn and Sue Wynn-Jones from Cr�g Farm, this could be hardier. It has frozen back considerably but it has always regrown and been a feature each year. Mild winters here it does great and two years of growth can have stems to 4' or even 5'.
We were completely blown away by the plant we saw in full fruit in the exceptional garden at Dancing Oaks and sad to say, we did doth covet our neighbors plant with lust in our hearts. Leonard and Fred thought it prudent to sell us one. To 6'-8' with soft yellow flowers and dripping with clusters of salmon fruit.
FMWJ13290. Collected at Lao Cai, Phansi Pan, Vietnam 2930 meters. Quite a new plant to cultivation and early indications are is that it will have quite handsome foliage. Many plants from this area are proving to have surprising hardiness in the PNW so we have hopes this will be the case with this Berberis.
