    Design IdeasThis is a true dwarf Nandina that is nearly a groundcover in stature. Perfect for adding bright red coloring to shaded beds of shrubs and perennials. Surround individual small trees with its color, allow it to nestle into landscape boulders or spread out in rock gardens. Excellent around water gardens, where it won't obscure the view of water plants and fish. A very bold accent plant in modern architectural landscapes.

    Care Information

    <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).
