Heavenly bamboo 'Firepower' red - hardy - Hardy plant

Nandina domestica 'Firepower'
Colour gradient
A fiery little plant! The heavenly bamboo 'Firepower' (Nandina domestica) owes its name to the shape of the leaves. They look a bit like bamboo leaf. At the beginning of the summer, white flowers bloom on the plant. After flowering, red berries follow. The heavenly bamboo produces new, bright red, spring shoots. Even in autumn and winter, the leaves have a beautiful, deep red colour. This is how we maintain colour in the garden all year round thanks to this winter-hardy plant! Prune the plant at the end of the winter. Position the plant in a place with plenty of sunlight. Water the plant sparingly. Water more during dry periods.

Planting+

What do I need?

  • A trowel
  • Garden peat and compost
  • Water

Water first
Place the Nandina in a bucket of lukewarm water first. Add garden peat and compost to a large pot and then plant. First place the plant in shade first, and move it to an area in the sun for an hour longer each day, so that it can adapt.

In the garden
Nandinas thrive in the sun or half shade and in nutrient-rich soil. Dig a planting hole and till the soil a bit, so that the roots can take hold quickly. Set the root ball at the proper height, so that the top is just below ground level. Fill the hole up with soil, garden peat and compost, and press firmly. Water the plant right away.

Care+

What do I need?

  • Pruning shears

Maintenance
A Nandina does not require much attention. During dry periods, water it so that the roots do not dry out.

Pruning
You do not need to prune a Nandina, but you can if youwish. In any case, never prune where the flowers have begun to wilt, because after the blooming period, the Nandina will produce attractive little fruits between the old petals. In spring, you can cut away old or damaged branches to keep your shrub looking sleek.

Extra+

Heavenly Bamboo (Nandina domestica) originates from China and Japan. This shrub can flower with white blooms in the summer but it's quite hard to get those. If the bush does flower, and you leave them on the plant, you will then get cute little red berries right through into November. Your garden birds will love eating these.
 
Nandina domestica is classified as barberry (Berberidaceae).
