Nandina domestica, or Heavenly Bamboo, is small, compact, dense, evergreen or semi-evergreen shrub with a wonderful, colourful, bamboo-like, lance-shaped, lacy foliage – in shades of red in spring, green in summer, and again red in autumn. The clusters of small, star-shaped, white flowers may bloom in summer and are sometimes followed by bright, red berries. Nandina domestica is adaptable to a wide range of soils, but prefers fertile, hummus-rich, consistently moist, well-drained soils. It thrives in full sun with some afternoon shade. Once established, it is resistant to drought. It can tolerate frost, but may need some protection from harsh winds. In very cold climates, it may lose some leaves or die to the ground. Generally, pest-free and disease-free. Low maintenance plant. It is considered to be invasive. Heavenly Bamboo is stunning when planted in groups or masses. Perfect for shrub borders, foundations, informal hedges and screens, as a groundcover or edger. Suitable for growing in containers.

Arundel Arboretum is a shrub and tree retail nursery with over 40 years of experience.

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).
