Sienna Sunrise ~ Nature Tuesday

Sharing one of my Nandina shrubs with you. I have these shrubs planted beside the front steps. They have pretty foliage. Greens mixed with some burgundy, as the season progresses. This photo is also being shared with today’s Nature Tuesday challenge.

There are many types of Nandina. The one I have is called Sienna Sunrise. Nandina shrubs display bright red fall foliage, and many varieties also provide beautifully colored new growth in spring. Sienna Sunrise is one such variety, putting on a spring show with its blazing red foliage and displaying red highlights in fall. Sienna Sunrise grows 2 feet wide and 3 to 4 feet tall. 

I just learned this important fact while researching today: Nandina leaves and berries are toxic and may be harmful to birds, humans, grazing animals and cats.

Enjoy nature photography. Amateur self-taught photographer and love every minute of the photos from my yard and Dustin's garden. Sunset views from my deck are very peaceful to watch, capture and share. I have two cats, Brendel and the Dude. I share both special and funny moments I capture of them with you.

Also enjoy seeing and reading your posts from all over the world.

  1. It looks really nice!! A greatly welcoming “bellboy” you’ve there!! hehe
    I’d like to edit comments … sometimes people type things without thinking … it can happen to me when I lose my cool or someone else for various reasons … if ones realises that what she type is not nice or simply could be misunderstood, she could edit it before it “hurt” others … just what I think

  2. Awe, he’s getting big! Great look for the front door area! It’s starting to turn already isn’t it. Or is it? We have these in the park I go to all the time. I love them. I remember when you planted this one. ๐Ÿ˜‰ Why wuld we nede to edit coments? Grins…

  3. We have Nandina shrubs here too but I think I have not see it long time already. Yes, yes, I want the option to edit comments and even posts as I really leave unoticed mistakes often and it hurt my eyes later.

  4. Very pretty! ๐Ÿ™‚ Yes, it’s the little things… It’s very hot and humid here right now so my favorite thing to do is to take evening walks and rides out near the water ๐Ÿ™‚ It’s almost that time of evening here ๐Ÿ˜€

  5. Lovely shrub, very decorative. On another site, we can edit the comments and it is really great because when writing the comment I don’t always notice I made a mistake until I have posted it and reread it.
