Notes:
'Filamentosa' is a dwarf cultivar with a mounding habit. It has unusual, deeply cut, lacy, narrow foliage that is reddish when emerging, bright green at maturity and an intense purplish-red colour in the 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 foliage interest. Full shade right up to full sun!
