Berberis microphylla is a paragon of virtue: it looks great as a foliage shrub; it has lovely yellow flowers; and it has blue-black berries, which make excellent jam, highly sought after in its native Patagonia. The small, glossy, deep green leaves are prickly, like tiny holly leaves.
Small shrub with spiny shiny leaves, yellow flowers and edible fruit.
