Gulf Stream Heavenly Bamboo

Nandina domestica 'Gulf Stream'

A fine-textured, colorful evergreen shrub originating from China and Japan. Reminiscent of bamboo with its cane-like, branching stems and delicate foliage, new growth emerges shades of bright red and matures to hues of blue-green. Loose clusters of tiny white flowers are followed by a profusion of shiny red berries from spring, into summer and fall. The compact shape of this shrub is ideal for use in mixed borders, containers, or as a low hedge.

Common Nursery Plant Forms

We use plant forms to describe how a plant has been grown in our nursery. Here are some common nursery plant forms explained.

A bush or multi refers to a shrub or small tree grown with multiple stems.

A standard has been trained to have a single trunk.
Many bush/multi plants are also available in standard form, so be sure to check the form when you add plants to your cart.

A column refers to a tree or shrub grown into a tall, narrow shape.

An espalier is a plant trained to grow in a two-dimensional form against a trellis.

Staked plants will be tied to a wooden or plastic stake during the growing process. This technique is generally used on vines but is sometimes used for certain trees or shrubs.
