Nandina domestica 'Plum Passion'
Common Name: Heavenly Bamboo Family: Berberidaceae (The Barberry Family)

Nandina domestica 'Plum Passion'
Zoom In Photo:

Notes:
Perhaps the most spectacular and certainly the most unique of the nandinas, 'Plum Passion' is deep purplish red when in new growth, deep green in summer and rich reddish-purple in fall and winter. Clusters of small white summer flowers give way to bright orange-red winter fruit. 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!
