Availability: Out of stock

Harbor Belle Heavenly Bamboo (Nandina domestica HARBOR BELLE 'Jaytee') is an evergreen shrub with brilliant berries and colorful foliage for spring and fall! With an evergreen nature that maintains a vibrant presence in your yard, it's already a terrific investment for enduring color.

However, even beyond its evergreen nature, Harbor Belle rings in spring with starry flowers of pristine white and pink-tinted new foliage. Brilliant scarlet berries follow the flowers and persist throughout your winter months. Even before winter descends, however, your Harbor Belle foliage will erupt in bright burgundy shades, a showy introduction to the cooler season.

Harbor Belle Nandina is a dwarf variety with a dense, spreading nature, is drought tolerant and generally maintenance-free. Plant in any sun or shade throughout USDA growing zones 6 through 11. Preferring moist locations to average moisture, these are highly adaptable and resilient groundcovers!

Planting and Application:

Plant a few for a year-round groundcover, or use just one as a lively accent in your perennial bed. A few of these scattered about your yard would provide an adorable splash of color throughout the year. Use in sun or shade around moist locations of your property, allowing these to even tolerate being planted close to water features, ponds and brooks! Any moist location will gain a low-growing leafy evergreen living mulch!

You'll love the four-season beauty of this low-growing creeper to soften the tops of retaining walls, stabilize banks and hillsides from erosion and act as a green fringe around the bases of large trees and shrubs! Use where the gutters drain or as a rambling little shrub near your Rain Garden!
