Heavenly Bamboo - Nandina domestica

Heavenly Bamboo (Nandina Domestica)

Despite it’s name, this plant isn’t bamboo at all. The thin, bony-like stems are reminiscent of them, but are in fact a member of the barberry family. Heavenly Bamboo is a dramatic plant for your landscape, turning from this rich green color, to a bold red hue in the winter season. Clip a few branches off and add them to your home!

Where They Do Well:

These guys can do well in hot climates but live happily in our moderate San Francisco climate. You’ll find they look great as a hedge or screen, and thrive in planters.


Aside from needing little (to regular) watering, a yearly trim at the ground level on the oldest canes, will keep these from getting to clumped together and top heavy.
