So often homeowners get the idea that they have to surround their home with evergreens for an effective foundation planting. Then, they get stuck in the mindset of taking ‘evergreen’ literally – the plant must always be green. If that sounds like you, we’d like to shake you out of that thought process and introduce you to Gulf Stream Heavenly Bamboo (Nandina domestica ‘Gulf Stream’).

This beautiful shrub goes through kaleidoscopic changes from spring to winter. New leaves emerge a scarlet-macaw red in spring. They mature to a soft blue-green later in the summer, making a perfect backdrop to the sweet little white flowers that pop up all over the shrub. Then, as the weather cools, the foliage blushes rich and intense autumn-red.

Gulf Stream naturally grows into a small rounded shape 4 feet tall and 3 feet wide, no pruning necessary. This makes it perfect for foundation plantings, borders, mass plantings, poolside beds and even small urban gardens. These super-tough plants are just about indestructible in zones 6-11. They tolerate everything from cold weather to high humidity to urban pollution. If you live in a fire-prone area, Gulf Stream is a beautiful plant on many ‘firescaping or firewise’ plant lists.

They are great container plants, too. Try them as the ‘thriller’ in your entryway pots. Gulf Stream looks great in so many garden styles, too – from Asian/Zen to Contemporary to Rustic and Cottage – that we are positive it will fit into your home landscape.
