Nandina domestica 'Blush Pink™'

Heavenly bamboo, Sacred bamboo
Berberidaceae
Evergreen, Shrubs

NANDINA

Slow to moderate growth to 6–8 ft. tall, 3–4 ft.wide. Old clumps may be wider than tall because of slow, steady spread by suckers.

Leaves are divided into many 1–2-in. leaflets shaped like pointed ovals. Foliage emerges pinkish and bronzy red, then turns to soft light green; takes on purple and bronze tints in fall and often turns fiery crimson in winter, especially in a sunny location and with some frost.

A good filler in bouquets.

Pinkish white or creamy white blossoms in loose, erect, 6–12-in. clusters bloom at branch ends in late spring or early summer.

If plants are grouped, shiny red berries follow the flowers; isolated plants seldom fruit heavily.
