Hi Anu. Barberries, in order to develop and hold their color, need more than a half day of sun. Mine are growing on the edge of the forest and receive that much. Without that much sun they will lose their color and won't be worth taking up precious bed space. As a general rule, red and orange foliage is a bit of a natural sun screen for the plant. If they don't need it, they won't produce it. Thanks for the question.
