Commonly called Heavenly Bamboo, Nandina can be used in virtually any part of the landscape and is especially useful in full or part sun, where the foliage color is superb. The new growth is often bronze to rose in color, becoming green with age. In the fall and winter, the growth takes on autumn leaf colors: red, orange, bronze and pink. The plant has added value in that it provides cut branches for use in floral arrangements year round. As the plant matures, late summer and early fall flowers may develop, eventually producing red berries. The flower clusters are quite large - 8" to 12" - and can be dried for arrangements.Planted in the garden near night lights, Nandina will cast a beautiful silhouette.... Nandina is a very popular plant in Japanese gardens due to its leaf texture and color. In the Japanese home garden this plant will often be found near the front or back door, as it is considered the 'friendship plant'. Legend says that a Nandina beside the front door serves to listen to the worries of the head of the household. So if you don't mind speaking to plants, this one might work! Also makes a great house plant in a sunny, yet cool window.
