It's a horrible picture - sorry about that. A large greyish green shrub with milky green flowers. If it flowered freely in large showy clusters, it would be the most
wonderful Berberis ever. Unfortunately, it only produces them as scattered singles. It is always marketed at flower arrangers because of the green flowers, but it is
completely useless for them - the foliage looks rather dusty and the flowers are short lived.
It is the sort of evergreen shrub that occupies space without causing offense or elation, so the tiny flowers are the only real point. From time to time I wander out
to see if it is flowering, and it usually manages a small reward.
I bought it 25 years ago from Sandra Bond. Over the years it has interested me, but never really been amazing so unfortunately this year it's time ran out.
During the summer I built an extension to the greenhouse and the Berberis was in the way. Too large to transplant and too troublesome to propagate,
sadly I decided to simply grub it out and move on, so unless I decide to make room for another, this is the last of Berberis panlanensis!
