Flirt™ Heavenly Bamboo (Nandina domestica 'Muraski') is an evergreen shrub with four-season interest. The foliage and berries are also popular for use in crafts and floral arrangements, so be sure to select a few to enjoy some of Heavenly Bamboo's beauty indoors.

Flirt™ features small spring, star-shaped white flowers that appear in May to June, but is most beloved for its dramatic fall and winter display! While the flowers are small and may not be the showiest, local bees and butterflies love these darling blossoms! The real show starts when this flirty little shrub blushes with red new growth in spring and is sure to catch your eye before it transitions to its vibrant blue-green for summer. Its numerous leaflets tend to lend the foliage a lacy appearance, providing some added definition for your landscape.

Featuring an upright, compact form, is disease and pest-resistant, and is generally easy to care for. As autumn approaches, the Heavenly Bamboo will robe itself in shades of red brilliance for the rest of the year until more red appears in the spring! That means you can enjoy the most incredible red foliage for 9 months of the year! The bright display is enhanced by a multitude of scarlet berries that are lovely to behold.
