Nandina domestica ‘Gulfstream’ is a wonderfully versatile evergreen shrub and a favourite at Big Plant. Otherwise known as ‘Heavenly Bamboo’, the leaves are whippy, like those of bamboo and provide a vibrant array of colours. Striking shades of red, purples, yellows, oranges and greens can be seen throughout the year.
During the warm summer months, Nandina domestica ‘Gulfstream’ will produce an abundance of pretty white star-shaped flowers which are followed by bright red berries.
Although tolerant of full sun or dappled shade, a sunny position will ensure a more intense display of colour. This is a compact shrub reaching up to around 100cm in height and width and requires very little attention. We recommend planting with a generous helping of organic matter. Also suitable for container growing.
