About Nandina

Nandina are highly attractive evergreen shrubs that display divine foliage consisting of pinnate, lance-shaped leaves where colour normally coincides perfectly with typical autumnal shades. Clusters of small star-shaped flowers cause a scene during the summer and are swiftly followed by stunning bright red berries. Nandina are best suited to flower beds and borders within courtyard, cottage and informal garden settings. You should expect to see Nandina grow to an approximate height and spread of 1-1.5m (3-5’).

How to plant Nandina

Nandina are best planted in moist, well-drained soil of sand, clay, clay or loam within an acidic, alkaline or neutral PH balance. For dramatic effect group several Nandina together to form hedging or boundary borders to produce a brilliant display of colour during the autumn. Locate Nandina in a position of full sun as this is where it will thrive best. Site your area appropriately as Nandina roots will spread on mass. Dig a hole twice the width and the same depth as the root ball with just a shaving of soil that covers your shrub. Water thoroughly and deeply to settle the soil in place.

How to care for Nandina

There is no need to prune Nandina but it is recommended to undertake a regular tidy up to remove old, dead or damaged branches. You may wish to prune during the spring time to keep its size compact, thus promoting denser growth. Nandina may require regular fertilisation as this will encourage a thicker and more lush looking plant. Soil will need to be kept moist especially during periods of drought.

How to propagate Nandina

It is possible to propagate Nandina by seed or alternatively by semi-hardwood cuttings.
