'Nandina' - Nandina domestica Available in 3 Gallon & 15 Gallon
Also known as heavenly bamboo, nandina is an evergreen or semi-evergreen woody shrub often used in landscaping. Its distinctive compound leaves which have lance shaped leaflets are held on multiple nonbranching stems.
The whole plant has a very lacy appearance and upright form, growing 6-8 ft (1.8-2.4 m) The species tends to sucker outward, forming ever larger clumps.
In spring, there are large panicles of small white flowers at the end of stems followed by green berries which ripen to bright red that are held for many months (unless devoured by birds). The wood is bright yellow.
Culture Prefers reasonably rich soil; does not thrive in sand. Otherwise, this is one of the toughest and most adaptable of plants to a variety of conditions. It knows practically no pests or diseases unless it is direly stressed. Many cultivars have been developed for size, berry color, and fall and winter leaf color, and are available at nurseries.
Although cultivars are more delicate than the species and can succumb to leaf spot fungi, they usually overcome it with time and changing weather conditions. Some specimens are known to have lived for more than 100 years.
Light Sun to shade. Moisture Moist to average; tolerates dry spells once established. Hardiness USDA Zones 6 to 9 Propagation From cuttings during warm weather, or from seed.
