Plant in full sun to part shade. Nadinas are adaptable to just about any soil. However, avoid wet soil to prevent disease and even death. Water deeply when planting and twice weekly for the first 3 months while your new plant is establishing. After establishing, nandinas are very drought tolerant and will only need watered during extremely hot/dry conditions. Three inches of mulch is a great option to prevent weeds, keep the soil cool and moist, and protect the roots during extreme temperatures. Fertilize in spring with a balanced, slow release fertilizer. We have our own custom blend to give your new plants the best start! Nandinas can tolerate heavy pruning, but don't require it. Prune any time of the year.
This Nandina is extremely resistant to pests and diseases.
There are many uses for Nandinas. Plant in groups for a big punch of color, or you can use them as a border planting. When planting a border, space Nandina about 2 feet apart. They will grow together making a small, colorful hedge that is year-round.
Plant three Nandina around a specimen plant like a Hinoki Cypress or an Emerald Arborvitae. The yellow and red colors will pull the dark greens out from the specimen plant.
Nandinas are highly toxic to pets.
