In the case of flowering shrubs like Rhododendron or berberis it should be done as soon as the flowering season is past.
Examples of this are furnished by the cardiac muscle of the animal, the pulvinus of Mimosa, and the stamen of berberis.
berberis is the barberry, so well known by its beautiful pendent berries.
berberis Thunbergii, or Barberry, makes a fine hedge, on account of its beautiful foliage and scarlet fruit.
Viburnum niveum, Hydrangea arbuscula, non-scandens, berberis integrifolia.
Of bushes, the most frequent are the jume (Salicemia) and the calafat (berberis axifolia).
They may be kept altogether in pots, giving them much the same attention during summer as berberis stenophylla.
The best of these are the strong-growing berberis aristata, and the common berberis vulgaris, with its several varieties.
berberis vulgaris foliis purpureis, one of the best purple shrubs.
berberis stenophylla gains in beauty by severe pruning, thinning out and cutting back after flowering is over.
