Berberis thunbergii 'Helmond Pillar'

In case you didn't know, 1/2 Price Pots is having an end of the season sale. All outdoor pots are an additional percentage (from 25-50%) off their already reduced prices. I picked up a huge blue pot a couple of weeks ago to add some color to our hillside. I'm totally into splashes of color right now. I had thought of planting a rose bush in it or maybe another hydrangea. However, during a trip to West Seattle Nursery I came across the Helmond Pillar and I knew it was the plant for me. As it matures its leaves will become more purplish and add yet more color to the hillside.

Hmm, nice, but it doesn't seem to really pop with color now.

Did you winterproof said pot?
