Heavenly Bamboo Nandina 'Fire Power'- 5L Pot

Nandina 'Fire Power' is a compact, rounded, evergreen shrub with colourful, bamboo-like leaves. In the summer it produces small, white, star-shaped flowers that are followed by shiny red berries. However, it is the brightly coloured foliage that makes this shrub so special. Its compound leaves are a pretty yellow-green in the summer before becoming a vision of fiery orange and red in the autumn.

With its compact habit this hardy shrub is excellent for growing in containers or planted as part of a border. It is happiest when placed in a sheltered but sunny position in moist, well-drained soil. With such a long season of interest 'Fire Power' would make a fantastic addition to any garden.
