Chime Heavenly Bamboo

Nandina domestica 'Chime'

This unique evergreen shrub has exceptionally fine texture and form, belied by its vigor and toughness. Chartreuse green, finely dissected, thread-like leaves turn orange-red in winter. Slowly forms a dense and compact mound, superb in landscape or containers. Dainty white flowers followed by red berries add to its appeal.
