Known for its spectacular red berries and excellent foliage colour, Nandina domestica (Sacred Bamboo) is an attractive, small, evergreen or semi-evergreen shrub adding multi-season beauty to the garden. In spring, a profusion of tiny, white flowers adorned with golden anthers appear in long arching panicles at the tips of the branches. Rich in nectar, they attract bees and other pollinators.

The flowers are followed by abundant clusters of green berries which ripen to bright red and persist throughout autumn and winter. Ornamental and adding winter interest to the landscape, they are held against the lacy foliage which emerges purple, matures to soft green and turns purple to reddish-purple in autumn.

Highly popular in the landscape, Sacred Bamboo is one of the toughest and most adaptable plants, its berry-laden branches providing a pleasing vertical accent.
