Product Description

One of the finest evergreen shrubs you can grow for spectacular winter colour of both leaves and red berries, this should be in everyone's winter garden.

The variety 'Woods Dwarf' reaches just under 3 feet tall so is compact and perfect for pots and patios. It has larger leaves than some varieites, and has a simply sensational autumn and winter colouration. Hardy and tough as old boots, it has a bamboo-like 'cane' habit (hence its common name Sacred Bamboo) with several upright stems from a clump, but unlike bamboo does not spread.

In spring new foliage is tinged pink which turns mid-green in summer and small white flowers appear - but it really comes to life as the temperatures drop in autumn...The leaves turn a spectacular bonfire orange red, perfect for Halloween and autumn colour, and the red deepens and intensifies as it gets colder. The flowers turn to berries, which themselves get redder and redder too, so they are a frenzy of colour in full winter.

Great as a specimen in a pot, so you can move it near the door to lift your spirits on dark days, or equally at home in the soil in a mixed border planting.

Plant Information

Top Tips

Nandina doesn't like being planted too deeply. When planting, the top roots of the Nandina should barely be in the soil.

Care Guide

  • Nandina prefers acid to neutral soil, especially if it is rich in organic matter and kept regularly watered.
  • Plants hate sitting in wet soil, so will benefit from added grit to the planting hole if your soil is heavy.
  • Plant in full sun if you want the best colour, however Nandina will also perform well in light shade.
  • Shrub roots generally tend to spread out rather than down, so dig a planting hole 3 x wider than the roots of the shrub you're planting, and mix some well rotted compost or manure with the soil from the hole and use this to re-fill one the shrub is in place.
  • We've found that a square hole is better than a round one as the new roots, once they reach the edges tend to grow in a circle round the circumference of the hole whereas when they reach the corners of a square hole, they find it easier to grow through.
  • Before planting soak container-grown shrubs thoroughly and allow to drain.
  • Remove the plant from its pot and tease out a few of the roots.
  • Add Mycorrhizal fungi to the roots when planting to help plants establish quicker.
  • Place your shrub in the hole at the same level at the pot.
  • Refill the hole with the earth removed (backfilling).
  • Firm in the soil with your heel, avoiding the root ball.
  • Water well.
  • Mulch around the base of the plant with a collar, compost, gravel, bark etc.
