Product Information


Latin name: Berberis vulgaris

Family: Berberidaceae and Ranunculaceae (buttercup)

Common name: Common barberry, European barberry, berberry

Parts used: Root and stem


There are more than 450 species of the Berberis genus. Common or European barberry is a large shrub with upright, branched, woody stems that grows from 2.5-3m high.
The entire plant is covered in an ash-coloured bark. It has alternate, shortly petioled leaves that grow to around 2.5-4cm long, the primary leaves being reduced to three-forked spines with an enlarged base and the secondary leaves being oval, simple and narrow at the base growing in fascicles. The shrub is covered in racemes of small, pale yellow flowers and the berries are oblong, slightly curved and about 1-1.5cm long. They ripen to a beautiful red colour and have a pleasantly acidic taste. Gerard praised both the berries and leaves as a seasoning for meats and salads. Cows, sheep, goats and a plethora of flying insects are especially fond of barberry.1
