Nandina is a shrub growing in my yard. I have several in the front garden. The evergreen plants are a favorite. They change from green to rust and then burgundy over the season.
There are many varieties of nandina, and they all provide beautifully colored new growth in the spring. Sienna Sunrise is one I have in the garden, it sort of puts on a spring show with its blazing red foliage and displaying red highlights in fall. These are just starting to change colors.
I enjoy planting different types of flowers and shrubs. I have several of these and two are dwarfs.
They will not grow tall but in some spots of your garden you need to stagger the height of your plants.
Do you have year round plants in your garden?
