You're right, barberries are invasive in most states but not THIS state (WA) where I live so I still use and enjoy them in design. An alternative with similar foliage color would be one of the darker Weigela such as 'Midnight Wine' or even fringeflower 'Razzleberry" (Loropetalum chinense)

I live in the Chicago area and can not find any Forever Goldie arborvitae plants anywhere for purchase..... Even online. Any suggestions? Thank you... Karen

Karen, contact the grower www.qualitree.com, mention my name, and ask if they can help. They should be able to help you figure out who they sell to locally. It may be a grower rather than a retail nursery but you can then call THEM and ask wher you can buy the finished plants
