Does Daybreak Barberry have thorns?

Good question!

Yes, Daybreak and other barberries all have thorns. If that’s a concern, take a look at Sundrop Spirea. It’s a smaller maturing spirea with bright gold leaves and hardy to zone 8. Eternal Sunshine Abelia is another good option for warmer zones.

Thanks for writing!
