Hosted by Pam at Digging, getting things going with a shout-out for a luscious trifecta of agaves on her blog today.
My contribution today is a variety of the Heavenly Bamboo, Nandina domestica ‘Filamentosa,’ the first nandina I’ve ever purchased. (Nandina is a much-abused local landscape shrub.) And I’ve been inclined to think it was a silly purchase, but now I’m not so sure. It’s been bulking up over winter, the filigree leaves coloring and reddening. Also called Thread-Leaf Nandina. Planted under tetrapanax with golden carex and bergenia, with a couple Aster divaricatus included just this spring. All should be tough enough to contend with the tetrapanax. This nandina is slower growing and smaller than the species.
