So much work has been done making showy, compact selections of Nandina domestica over the last few decades that it seems we have forgetten the sheer beauty of old-fashioned Heavenly bamboo. Our garden form is a seedling we raised from an old specimen found in a Portland area garden. It has become one of the most visually appealing shrubs in our garden, its red-flushed foliage giving continued interest throughout the four seasons. In the winter exceptionally large trusses of scarlet fruit glow above the evergreen, red-infused, bamboo-like leaves. These fruits persist well into the spring when the new growth has a bronzy red hue.
