Q.Can A Barberry Shrub Survive In The Woods?
We are making a memorial in the woods. The wooded gradual slopped area will hold alot of moisture in the ground in the spring. The soil is clay and black dirt in our area. There is alot of run off into the ravine downhill. We have cleared the area for a nice space but the other trees around will likely block out much of the sun. What is the likelihood this Orange rocket barberry and citrus barberry could survive as landscape?
