new growth for barberry
I live in zone 4, last year some kind of bug ate all the leaves on my barberry. I would like to know if they will come back this spring. thanks.

Most deciduous trees and shrubs can take a complete defoliation, and still come back from it. Repeated defoliation could cause problems, so you'll want to watch the shrubs closely this year to protect them from a repeat occurrence. Barberries are quite tough. They can be pruned completely to the ground and will come back nice and full.
