Japanese Barberry Substitute

Japanese barberry is banned in MA. What can I use in your low-water garden plans as a substiture

Submitted by zzamac

Rosemary is a good low-water use shrub for Zones 6 and warmer. (The variety 'Arp' is hardy to Zone 5B.) In Massachusetts, you could also substitute spirea in most of the garden plans.
