    Design IdeasThis smaller Nandina is ideal for little gardens. Bushier in form, it serves as a foundation plant, miniature hedge or single specimen. Careful pruning helps shape it to fit you space. Excellent choice for condominium gardens, walled entries, courtyards and around porches and decks. Use as a bright edging in shade gardens, or to spice up dwarf conifer gardens or rockeries. Small enough to look super in dark ceramic pots (avoid colors in the red spectrum).

    Light Needs:
    <strong>Partial Sun / Partial Shade</strong>: These two terms are often used interchangeably to mean 3-6 (or 4-6) hours of sunlight each day. However, there is a difference.
<strong>Partial shade</strong> typically means the plants will appreciate a more gentle exposure such as the weaker morning or early afternoon sun, with the emphasis on providing the minimum needed shade and sheltering from intense late afternoon sun. <strong>Partial sun</strong> typically means the plants <u>need</u> some direct sun, so the emphasis is on meeting the required minimum hours of sunlight, with filtered sunlight or shade the balance of the day.
Both are best with shelter from the harshest late afternoon sun. This shade could be provided by a structure, a wall, larger plants or  tree(s).
