Heavenly Bamboo (Nandina domestica) C ^* X

         wiring is seldom used with; looks best in group plantings; root sprouts prolifically; remove the oldest stems to prune; the buds tend to come out a few inches below the chop and at a rather sudden angle, so it’s hard to get a tree without sudden zags in it, can get several sprouts, but they’re as likely as not to all be on the same side; prune the top to get lower growth; leaves change color in the autumn; a chill brings out best color; do not let dry out.   [Berberidaceae; Ranunculales]
