Also Known As (other names):Berberry, Epine Vinette, Mahonia, Pipperidge bridge

Barberry is native to most of Europe. This semi toxic, very thorny bush has also been domesticate as hedges and garden bushes where nothing else would grow. The Barberry berries are less toxic and often conserved as a rather acrid jam.

All of the Barberry plant is used for herbal purposes but it is mostly the berries, Bark, leaves and roots that are harvested. Because of Barberry's mild toxic properties Barberry should only be used by people that are familiar with Barberry, uses and methods of extraction.
