Nandina domestica hybrids and cultivars

Common Names: Nandina, Heavenly Bamboo, Sacred Bamboo
Family: Berberidaceae

Not actually a bamboo, but the species looks somewhat like one.

Dwarf forms are usually more popular for modern gardens and urban landscaping, and can be used as informal mini-hedges or even groundcover if planted en masse. They are suprisingly tough plants and very popular with landscapers.

They can get nice autumnal tones in winter, but this might depend on the environmental conditions they are growing in. Berry-producing cultivars should be avoided because of their weed potential. More information about Nandina coming to this page in the future.
