The Heavenly Bamboo, Nadina domestica, is not a true bamboo but a upright 6-8? high, semi-evergreen shrub that tends to slowly sucker at the base, forming colonies. New leaves are coppery to purplish-red, becoming blue green with age. When this plant is in full sun it usually assumes a reddish tint in winter (depending on environmental conditions). Perfect and pinkish in bud, finally white 8-15? long panicles appear in May-June, and will flower in heavy shade. Spectacular, round clusters of bright red berries ripen in the fall and persist into winter. Heavenly Bamboo is more showy that most hollies because fruit is not hidden by foliage. Careful pruning, as canes do not branch out and best to thin out old stems every year or head back old canes at varying lengths to produce a dense plant. Once established, they are very tough plants, thriving in sun, shade, moist or dry conditions.
