Nandina domestica

Nandina domestica

Family berberidaceae
Life cycle shrub (Z6-9)

From most reports, this is a nice shrub with a different look through the seasons. It has gotten itself onto a few invasive species lists, especially in the warmer parts of the country, but does not have a reputation for aggressively spreading itself around in our area. I picked ours up a few years ago at an HPS/MAG member sale, and it really hasn't grown any bigger. Every year I think it has bit the dust in spring, since it is very late to leaf out. And then it just kind of sits there, as plants grow up around it and crowd it out. I should probably try moving it to a different location...

In our garden, this plant grows in the following areas: curve garden (front lobe), houston back yard
