Nandina, renowned for its excellent foliage colour and spectacular red berries is an evergreen, attractive shrub that can add an elegant touch to your garden. During spring, the shrub produces a profusion of white flowers with golden anthers at the tip of the branches. Being rich in nectar, these plants attract bees and other pollinators to your garden.
