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).
