Nandina Heavenly Bamboo


The Nandina Heavenly Bamboo is the full size version of our Nandinas. The full size Heavenly Bamboo grows to be about 8 feet tall but carries many of the same characteristics as our smaller versions. The leaves progress to a bronzy color in the fall and return to a deep green during the spring and summer. The spring time also brings about long lasting, star shaped, white flowers that eventually give way to bright red berries.
