Heavenly Bamboo

Nandina domestica

Heavenly Bamboo offers the graceful airiness of a true bamboo at only a fraction of the cost!

They also make a fine light and informal screen, hedge or space definer when grouped in the landscape. Virtually trouble-free, Heavenly Bamboo resists heat, drought, cold, pests and diseases with very little need for pruning or cleaning.
