Nandina domestica 'Gulf Stream'
Common Name: Heavenly Bamboo Family: Berberidaceae (The Barberry Family)
'Gulf Stream' is a compact dwarf cultivar growing in a symmetrical mound to about four feet. New growth is bronze, mature summer foliage is deep blue green and the fall and winter colour can range from orange to red. 'Gulf Stream' has not been known to bloom or berry. Not a bamboo at all but a non-invasive relative of Mahonia, the Oregon grape. Nandinas are incredibly versatile and useful evergreen shrubs with great interest from foliage texture and colours. Full shade right up to full sun!
