The Lemon-Lime Nandina is a fabulous small shrub, growing 90cm - 1m tall, with wonderful chartreuse-green new growth, and greener older growth, creating a great visual texture that enriches all the plants around it. Grow it as an edging on larger beds, or as a specimen in smaller ones. With its cloudy look of many small leaves, it is perfect for a natural garden, while still looking great in a more formal one. It is also a perfect choice for Zen gardens, or other Asian-style looks, as well as being ideal for planter boxes and beautiful pots and containers.
Stylish chartreuse-green young leaves
Smaller size for smaller gardens
Great edger for beds and paths
Doesn’t flower, so need seeds to spread to natural areas
Easily grown in any garden
Grow the Lemon-Lime Nandina in full sun for the best lime-green foliage colour, but it will grow in almost all light conditions, including light full shade. It grows well in almost any soil, except for very wet ones, and it has no pests or diseases. It needs no trimming to keep its compact, neat look, and it almost never flowers, so it cannot invade natural spaces, as older types of Nandina have been doing. For a great look on an easy-care plant, this one simply can’t be beaten.
