Here in my Georgia Garden, I have Nandina plants. This Royal Princess was given to us by my parents in honor of our beloved kitty Skeeter. We called Skeeter our baby for almost 16 years when he left us to cross over the Rainbow Bridge.
We planted this Nandina by his resting spot and now when I am in the yard, I talk to the plant as if it were Skeeter. The squirrels occasionally strip a stem and either them or the birds eat the berry's each year. The plant is in full shade and seems to love this area as it is doing well. Slow to grow but still growing...
We also have other Nandina's in the yard but I have no idea what type as they were here when we purchased the house. We moved this one from the overcrowded front planter and it loves the new spot and gives us bright red leaves in the winter months.
The leaves are a vibrant deep color of red and once again, remind me that Christmas is just around the corner!
