Fiery Shrub with Year-Round Interest
Nandina Obsession, Nandina domestica 'Seika', is an evergreen shrub with richer coloring than other Nandinas. One would look amazing as an accent near a side door, or plant a few in a little-used area to add some year-round, carefree interest.
This cultivar’s name “Seika” means “sacred fire”—which perfectly fits the brilliant nature of this shrub’s new growth. The densely-foliaged, oval leaves are so intensely red that their display will appear as a splash of “fire” in your landscape.
Leaves on the Nandina Obession will mature to green, displaying a mix of greens and reds for much of the year. When autumn arrives however, the foliage returns to its full dazzling, scarlet tones…and maintains that intensity into winter. Just imagine those red leaves against the white of your winter snowfall!
Nandina Obession will grow up to 4 feet in height with an equal spread. It is a dwarf variety, with an upright, compact nature. It’s considered a low-maintenance plant, so you can pretty much just plant it and forget it—although that will of course be hard to do since its bright colors are such as stand-out in any landscape! Obsession Nandina doesn’t mind some pruning, but you’ll likely want to leave it be, as its natural beauty is exceptional.
If you’re looking for a decorative, carefree shrub then Nandina Obession is a terrific choice. Its gorgeous reds, greens and year-round interest are sure to present an impressive sight in your yard this year!
