I love these Nandina shrubs in my garden. There are many varieties to choose from. Mine are called Blush Pink Nandina. They do not get very tall. And they offer a pretty color in the spring through fall. They are actually more of a burgundy than a pink color.
The contrast between the mature leaves, which are a rich shade of green, and the new pink leaves, is striking. From spring through fall, these green shrubs are topped with pink leaves!
A second colorful show begins in the fall, when Blush Pink Nandina turns a deep shade of purplish-red and retains this vivid color throughout fall and winter.
Nandina leaves and berries are toxic and may be harmful to birds, humans, grazing animals and cats. But mine are planted in an area where my cats cannot get to them.
Below is another photo showing the entire bush in my front garden. The above photo was taken today as the sun was shining on the leaves creating a great color.
Are you familiar with the Nandina plant?
