The article offers the author's insights on the problems and difficulties associated in cultivating Berberis in the garden. The author mentions that Berberis is a very difficult genus and the problems of identifying individual plants were due to the plasticity of its features such as fruit stalks. He recommends nine species of Berberis including Berberis concinna, Berberis dictyophylla, and Berberis griffithiana which are valuable species in the garden and have been advertised by nurseries.
