The Heavenly Bamboo Nandina has the most phenomenal year-round color and interest that you can find in a shrub. This evergreen plant offers stunning Asian appeal similar to bamboo without all the issues that come with real bamboo.
Young foliage emerges with a red or pink tint and changes to light green as it matures. Cool-weather brings out vivid red color. Hints of red over green begins in fall and often deepens to dark red in late fall or winter.
Clusters of pinkish-white flowers appear in spring and are followed up by bright, cherry red berries that persist into winter. The bamboo-like upright branches of this nandina offer even more interest as they often acquire the same red color the leaves gain in autumn

Are the berries on Nandina toxic?
Yes, unfortunately the berries are toxic to pets and animals including birds. However they are not a preferrable food as long as there is another food source.
Be sure to choose the right location and conditions for your Heavenly Bamboo Nandina to thrive. Spring and fall are ideal times to plant. However, in warmer climates you are open to a majority of winter and cooler zones you can plant in early or late summer. Just take care to avoid extreme temperature. Nandinas grow in zone 6-10.
Plant in full to partial sun. 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 general purpose, slow release fertilizer. We have our own custom blend made to give your new plants the best start! Nandinas can tolerate heavy pruning, but don't require it. Prune any time of the year.
