Compact Heavenly Bamboo, Nandina domestica 'Compacta', also know as Compact 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 and winter color. One of these would also do well near your entryway or as a foundation plant.
Your Compact 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 Compact Heavenly Bamboo is perhaps most beloved for its dramatic fall and winter display. It has an upright, compact form, is disease and pest resistant, and generally easy to care for.
As autumn approaches, the Compact Heavenly Bamboo 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.
For a spectacular fall display that lasts into winter, spring flowers and a verdant summer presentation, Compact Heavenly Bamboo is the shrub to choose. Even if you don't have the space for a traditional Heavenly Bamboo, this compact variety is a terrific way for you to enjoy it's stellar qualities this summer.
