Heavenly Bamboo

Nandina 'Fire Power' is a low-maintenance compact shrub for year-round interest with fiery foliage colour in autumn and winter.

If you don't have a lot of time to spend tending to the garden, then a colourful and compact shrub can be the ideal choice of plant to grow. Nandina is both colourful and compact - reaching a modest size of around 50cm with a bushy, rounded shape, it's a great choice for growing in a pot or a mixed border. This little shrub enjoys a sunny spot and has good drought tolerance too, so it won't even need a lot of water. Being evergreen, it brings colour and life to the garden throughout the year with its glossy leaves, but is particularly lovely later in the season. In autumn and winter, this beautiful plant will light up the garden with its leaves which turn to brilliant shades of orange and scarlet. Each spring, you can look forward to a profusion of small white flowers to kick of the season.

This is an all-round useful, long-lived and vibrant plant to have in the garden, whether you have gaps in the border or a container to fill.

Plant Care & Advice

Nandina domestica prefers a sheltered position to an exposed or windy site. It needs a sunny location, close to a south or west-facing wall would provide the perfect conditions.

This variety thrives in most soils, but prefers a rich soil which retains a bit of moisture. To improve your growing conditions, you can mix a good dose of compost into the planting hole prior to planting. If planting in a container, use a heavier soil-based compost rather than multipurpose.

Water regularly during its first season to help it to anchor itself into the soil. Once established in a border, it can usually source water from the soil itself. Shrubs planted in containers require regular watering during the summer months, particularly frequently when the weather is hot.

To improve the overall health of your plant, feed it occasionally during spring and summer with an all-purpose liquid feed, especially if it's planted in a pot where nutrients can quickly diminish.

Lightly clip this shrub to shape after flowering in the spring or early summer. 'Fire Power' is a compact shrub so won't get out of hand, but a yearly trim will help keep it bushy.
