Firepower Heavenly Bamboo
Nandina domestica 'Firepower'
|Description||One of the best coloring nandinas! New foliage has fresh green coloration, with red highlights as it ages. Brilliant red foliage develops in the fall and persists through winter. Neat, low evergreen mounds are terrific for borders, massing and containers. Requires little care and no pruning. Developed in New Zealand.|
|Watering||Water when top 2 inches of soil is dry.|
|Blooms||Inconspicuous; prized for foliage.|
|Mature Size||Moderate growing; reaches 30 in. tall and wide.|
|Landscape Use||Border, Container, Hedge|
|Design Ideas||Smaller than its predecessors and impossibly bright, this is the consummate accent for Asian-inspired gardens or for shaded landscapes in need of color. Plant as a single specimen in smaller gardens and courtyards, where its color provides a focal point or accent. Use in clusters for a powerful presence in more spacious landscapes. Perfect as a lacy overhang that won't block sunlight to water gardens, pools and fountains. Ideal plant for spas in small urban backyard gardens. May also be planted in pots.|
|Companion Plants||Pittosporum (Pittosporum); Rose (Rosa); Spreading Juniper (Juniperus); Cryptomeria (Cryptomeria); Abelia (Abelia)|
|Care||Easily grown in average, well-drained soil. Water deeply and regularly during the first growing season to establish an extensive root system; reduce frequency once established. Drought tolerant but best with supplemental summer water. Apply fertilizer before new growth begins in spring.|
|Lore||'Firepower' is said to not produce fruit or berries.|
