Nandina or Sacred Bamboo

Nandina, which is also known sacred bamboo are an evergreen or semi-evergreen shrub.

A perfect choice for adding texture and the oriental feel to the garden. Not like the normal bamboo, this is a stiff upright shrub.

They have erect shoots and alternate leaves which are a fantastic reddish-purple in winter, in their younger years. Nandina are grown for their flowers which are white with yellow anthers. These are star shaped and show in mid-summer.

Where to Site Your Nandina

The smaller growing forms make excellent groundcover while the larger growing varieties make freestanding border shrubs. Smaller growing varieties are ideal pot plants

How to Grow and Look after your Nandina

Nandina grow best in full sun but can tolerate shade just the foliage will not be as bright. Shelter from cold winds.

They need moist but well drained soil.

A multipurpose fertiliser I best used but not essential

The sacred bamboos grow slowly, they will not require too much pruning just a light tidy up come spring time or if you do need to prune the taller varieties then stick to the 1/3 rule, take out one third of the total number at ground level, this encourages new shoots and the lovely lacy foliage at the base of the plant
