Q: Is the Golden Jackpot barberry invasive here?
A: It is hard to know. Japanese barberry is very invasive in some parts of the
country, like New England, but does not seem to be as vigorous in the
Southeast. Yellow-leafed forms of barberry are reputed to have fewer flowers
and fruit. If you plant it, let me know! For more than you ever wanted to know
