The Nandina Brightlight, also known as Nandina domestica 'Brightlight,' is a captivating and ornamental shrub that graces gardens and landscapes with its unique beauty. Native to eastern Asia, this plant has become a popular choice for garden enthusiasts in the United Kingdom due to its striking appearance and low-maintenance nature.

Nandina Brightlight is a compact evergreen shrub that typically reaches a height of around 90-120 centimeters (3-4 feet) and a similar spread. It is renowned for its vibrant, eye-catching foliage that changes colour throughout the seasons. In spring and summer, the leaves emerge with a fresh, lime green hue, creating a refreshing contrast with other plants in the garden. As autumn approaches, the foliage transitions to shades of brilliant red and fiery orange, adding a burst of warm colors to the landscape. This dramatic colour change makes it a fantastic choice for adding interest and beauty to your garden year-round.

One of the key features of Nandina Brightlight is its resilience and adaptability. It can thrive in a variety of soil types and is quite tolerant of different light conditions, although it typically prefers partial to full sun. This adaptability makes it an excellent choice for gardens across the UK with varying soil and climate conditions.

Nandina Brightlight is also relatively low-maintenance, requiring little more than regular watering during dry spells and occasional pruning to maintain its shape. Its elegant, bamboo-like stems add a structural element to the garden, making it an ideal choice for both traditional and modern landscapes.

In addition to its aesthetic appeal, Nandina Brightlight is also known for its wildlife-friendly qualities, attracting birds with its bright berries in the autumn months.

About Us

During this time, we have developed a large stock of trees, mature evergreen shrubs, conifers, Japanese maples, cedars and olives. What sets us apart from a generic garden center is solid unwavering focus on trees and some bigger shrubs. You will find thousands of trees, hundreds of varieties and lots of experts who are working on the nursery and more than willing to help you to choose a plant for you.

What you will not find is hot tubs, garden furniture and plastic garden gnomes. In a nutshell, trees is what we know and trees is what we do, and only trees (and some shrubs to go with the trees).
