Garden Tuesday ~ Nandina


If you live somewhere where you can grow Nandina you simply must.  And see, if this was a regular garden post, from a regular garden blog, I would give you charts and graphs and zones and things.  But it’s not.  So, all I can tell you is that it does wonderful in Tennessee.  It’s evergreen, has gorgeous berries, and the new growth is a beautiful deep red. 

Please join me for Garden Tuesday.

    I have several and love using them in greenery arrangements because the berries last so must longer than holly or pyracantha. I’ve tried the yellow variety without any success.

    The downside of Nandina is that they spread. Between the root shoots and the ones planted by the birds, I have to dig them out periodically.

    They are pretty though. They don’t call it heavenly bamboo for nothing, I guess.

    I’m a big fan of Nandina and your photo of it is wonderful. Its bright color is a wonderful addition to any garden that needs a low growing shrub. I hope you have a great day. Blessings…Mary

    That’s just magnificent!!! I do believe I check it out to see if I can grow it here in the Ozarks. It would be a wonderful addition to my acre of flora and fauna.

    You have yourself a terrifically blessed and beautiful Tuesday sweetie!!! :o)

    And if it was a regular garden post, by a regular garden blogger, and you told us boring statistics, instead of charming us with your pictures, we’d all head elsewhere. Instead, we’ll admire your Nandina!

    Hi Pam,

    Your Nandina is stunning! I will have to do some research on it as I live in the Northeast. The color looks similar to our burning bushes. I’m happy to be able to join you this week.
