//Nandina Heavenly Bamboo

The Nandina family has a wide array of plants. Though named “Heavenly Bamboo” they are actually related to the Barberry family of shrubs. And NOT invasive as some Bamboo can be, but the name is evocative of the gentle and delicate growth habit.
An Evergreen shrub to 6-8 feet (smaller dwarf varieties exist). Many have clusters of small white flowers are followed by bright red berries. Foliage turns red or purplish in colder months. Appreciates some shade in hottest climates.
Proper pruning technique keeps this wonderful shrub looking great. Prune a few of the older woody canes at ground level about every 3-5 years, do not prune the top growth. Fertilize with an all purpose slow release organic fertilizer in spring to encourage the most colorful growth.
