Heavenly bamboo

Nandina domestica

The fine-texture foliage of heavenly bamboo is a more delicate stand-in for bamboo, with the bonus of red winter berries. Reddish new leaves mature to blue-gray as the showy flower spikes form and begin to bloom. In colder climates, the plants may drop their leaves; in warmer areas, the foliage reddens in winter. Heavenly bamboo forms an airy layer under trees in dry shade, but it performs best in moist, fertile, well-drained soil.
