Barberry Herb - Uses And Side Effects

Native to Europe and some parts of North America, Mahonia species are popular landscape shrubs. The plants have edible, red-orange, fruit like berries. The root wood of the barberry plant gets its bright golden-yellow color from berberine, which is added to some eye­drops and eyewashes.
