|Botanical Pronunciation||nan-DEE-na doh-MES-ti-ka|
|Lore||'Firepower' is said to not produce fruit or berries.|
|Average Size at Maturity||Moderate growing; reaches 30 in. tall and wide.|
|Bloom Time||Inconspicuous; prized for foliage.|
|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.|
