'Umpqua Chief' is a large nandina that can eventually reach seven feet. It has intense purplish-red colouration in the winter foliage. 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 foliage interest. Full shade right up to full sun!
