One of the best coloring nandinas! New foliage has fresh green coloration, with red highlights as it ages. Brilliant red foliage develops in the fall and persists through winter. Neat, low evergreen mounds are terrific for borders, massing and containers. Requires little care and no pruning. Developed in New Zealand.
