Nandina domestica-Heavenly Bamboo

   Nandina domestica is a graceful upright shrub that grows from 3 to 6 feet in height. It gets its name from the bamboo like growth habit. When thinned from the center it bears a remarkable resemblance to bamboo. It is best used in groups.  It can be used in a shaded patio or out in a shrub border with full sun. An interesting feature of Heavenly Bamboo is the bronze color in the new growth when planted in full sun. It also bears clusters of white flowers in the spring.
