Nandina domestica 'Blush' is a low maintenance, delightful dwarf shrub with red new foliage growth in spring, summer and autumn, and it will turn all red in winter. It is a smaller cultivar than Nandina domestica 'Nana', and more colourful, but still with the same tough and hardy characteristics. It also has the bonus of not setting seed, which lessens the weed potential. Suitable for low informal hedging and edging, massed or single planting, and great for container growing.
Nandina is suitable for all soil types, from sandy to heavy clay. It will tolerate frost and drought once established. Naturally dense growth habit, needing little attention to keep tidy. Grow in full sun to shade.
