Harbor Dwarf Nandina
True dwarf shines in the shade!
OK plant lovers, we are here answer a burning question for you. We know that you have seen this plant around, if not in your neighborhood then in the landscaping around a local business. You’ve probably heard it called ‘Heavenly Bamboo’ because its leaves and stems are so very bamboo-like. But the question is often “Is it really bamboo?”
Nature Hills has the definitive answer for you!
And the answer is….
NO! It’s not. It is actually in the barberry family! (We hope that you can sleep better at night, now that you’ve got that answered.)
So, even though it isn’t true bamboo, it is still a beautiful and very useful landscape plant, especially in those areas that need some texture and color. The problem is most nandina’s can get pretty large. The current trend toward smaller plants for smaller gardens doesn’t leave room for some of these big plants. But Harbor Dwarf Nandina (Nandina domestica 'Harbor Dwarf') is perfectly sized for modern gardens. It adds a shot of bright red to sunny borders or shady beds alike. (It can even handle full shade, but won’t color up as much as in the sun.)
This semi-evergreen is a true ‘plant it and forget it’ shrub. It doesn’t need pruning or coddling to keep it looking great. It fits into any garden style from modern to cottage to rustic. It is great around architectural features, under windows or around ponds as it accents but stays low enough to not cover or block views.
This is a wonderful and hardworking landscape shrub. If you need good filler or groundcover, then order some today!
