• Darwin's Barberry

Our Personal Guarantee


Barberry, including Darwin's barberry and European barberry, are woody evergreen shrubs with spiky leaves.


Barberrys are woody evergreen shrubs with small shiny leaves with sharp spines. They produce small yellow flowers followed by purple berries.

Darwin's Barberry is one of the Dirty Dozen in New Zealand's War on Weeds .


Apply Weed Weapon Rapid Action  ready to use, or Weed Weapon Extra Strength concentrate with Dye & Stick, all year round. Follow up on re-sprouting areas twice a year.

Cut down the barberry and immediately apply Weed Weapon Invade Gel   or Weed Weapon Stump Stop Gel to all cut ends to kill root systems effectively.

Small patches can be dug out but ensure all roots are removed as these will re-sprout. Dispose of plant material at a refuse transfer station or burn. Check for regrowth.
