Year Round Color and Brilliant Fall Display
Dwarf Heavenly Bamboo, Nandina domestica 'Compacta', also know as Dwarf Nandina, is an evergreen shrub with 4-season interest. Plant a few of these as a hedge along your property line for a splash of fall/winter color. One of these would also do well near your entryway or as a foundation plant.
Your Dwarf Heavenly Bamboo is, as it sounds, a “heavenly” addition for your landscape. It is not related to the invasive Bamboo plant, but rather is a remarkable shrub that will provide you with year-round enjoyment. The copper-tinted, new growth in spring is sure to catch your eye before it transitions to its vibrant green for summer. Its numerous leaflets tend to lend the foliage a lacy appearance, providing some added definition for your landscape.
Spring brings a scattering of small, star-shaped white flowers, but Dwarf Nandina is perhaps most beloved for its dramatic fall and winter display.
As autumn approaches, the Dwarf Nandina will robe itself in shades of purple-tinted, red brilliance. The bright display is enhanced by a multitude of scarlet berries that are lovely to behold. 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.
Dwarf Nandina will grow to about 5 feet in height with a 4-foot spread. It has an upright, compact form, is disease and pest resistant, and generally easy to care for.
For a spectacular fall display that lasts into winter, spring flowers and a verdant summer presentation, Dwarf Nandina is the shrub to choose. Even if you don’t have the space for a traditional Heavenly Bamboo, this dwarf variety is a terrific way for you to enjoy it’s stellar qualities this summer.
