I live near Portland, Oregon and am trying to purchase some Anna for an accent hedge. Does anyone know where I can buy some locally or on line? Thanks very much!

Hi Troy, I tried asking around my network of gardeners but seems it’s a rare plant. I’ll continue looking into it and will surely get back to you when I find something.

Hello Troy! It took me a while to track a source down. Actually, the original breeder for this variety is from Poland! The local plant breeder’s association has the plant on its listings.
From there, I wrote an email to his nursery email (the website seems broken, but the email works).
firstname.lastname@example.org is his email (Janusz Szewczyk is the person’s name).
I used google translate to contact him in both English and Polish in the same email. He’s able to send specimens of Berberis ‘Anna’ per post, though I don’t know what the price would be.
Keep us up-to-date if you follow through!December 28, 2020 at 5:48 pm ReplyCarolPrivate messageGreen Thumb (moderator)
I’m so happy to know you’ve found a supplier, Nate! I’ve been really trying so hard to find info on this. 🙂
Troy, keep us in the loop indeed! Hoping to see pictures…
