Bamboo 'Gulf Stream Heavenly'
Nandina domestica 'Gulf Stream'
Bamboo 'Gulf Stream Heavenly' is a tough, very hardy evergreen and also one of the best compact shrubs thanks to its year-round foliage interest. From China and Japan, part of the charm and appeal of Nandina domestica 'Gulf Stream' is its vibrant, ever-changing foliage. In spring, new scarlet red-colored leaves emerge, eventually maturing to blue-green in the summer, creating a scene that is sure to enhance any landscape. It’s tolerant of urban pollution, so it’s a great choice if you live in Southern California urban areas and want to add some dramatic color into your landscape.
This is a great water-wise plant, requiring only low to moderate water use once established. The Gulf Stream Heavenly Bamboo loves to grow in partial to full sun exposures where its dramatic foliage looks brilliant in the sun. It’s a cold hardy and very easy to care for shrub! One of the other things we love about them is their compact shape, so we love to plant them as a fine informal hedge, as a foundation planting, in mixed borders, or planted poolside – people love the look of its seasonal colors anywhere in the landscape! It blends well with all garden styles and is an excellent companion to Junipers and Roses. In Southern California, we also love to plant them for use as an excellent and colorful addition to any firewise landscape!If you’re looking for a colorful addition to your landscape, consider this Bamboo 'Gulf Stream Heavenly' shrub.
