barberryberberisvulgariscorkeFrom Wild Flowers as They Grow- Photographed by H. Essenhigh Corke, text by G. Clark Nuttall. Published by Cassell and Company, Ltd in 1912:-

At its best it is a tall shrub, almost a tree, with smooth, grey-green branches and yellow wood. In winter it can be seen that the bare branches are furnished at short intervals with groups of 3 small spines, and in the angle between these and the stems are buds out of which, in spring days, either shoots or leaves come. But whichever it is, these spines stand, like soldiers with bayonets, over the young tender green tissues, and defend them against all attack from browsing animals until such time as they have outgrown their protectors. The spines are metamorphosed leaves.
The leaves are a long oval, and their nicked edges tend to a little stiffening. They contain pleasantly acid juices.
In the early spring the little yellow flowers appear and hang in pretty clusters, buds at the tip, each flower drooping rather obliquely. Each little flower has an outer envelope of a number of small sepals, all yellow inside, and an inner envelope of 6 concave petals, also yellow. On the base of the petals, touching each other, are 2 thick, fleshy orange nectaries.
There is a fungus that has part of its life cycle as fungoid blight on wheat, the other part of its life as a fungus of quite different aspect on the Barberry. If you have wheat fields near your garden, you must destroy your barberry plants otherwise their crop will be infected and be unsaleable.
