Name that Plant!

This plant is probably easily identifiable. In fact it's a good bet that if you live in the south you have it in your yard, your neighbors yard, your school, your bank and pretty much everywhere you could think to put it! I saw rows of this at the home improvement store today which prompted me to make this post. Take a guess at it or if you know what it is then tell me what you think of it. I'll withhold my opinion on it until later!


  1. It's a Nandina and I have lots. I think you are going to say that you better really like it cause it will give you lots of babies. I like a new variety called Moonbeam.

  2. Ah, nandina ~ in my experience it is a very sllllooooooow grower.

    I am enjoying your site as I begin preparations for my own gardens this year! Thanks, and keep up the good work.

  3. Nandina...
    I never heard of it until we moved to GA. I have 5 of them in the yard courtesy of the previous homeowners. The four in the north planters grow quit fast therefore I must clip them back to keep them in spec with the Japanese Maples and Camellias which all share the planters...

  4. firepower nandina. have lots for foundation plantings.

  5. i really like the concete parking area behind it. do tell the story-please.

  6. Forgot about the "Nandina Royal Princess" we planted by our beloved Pet that went over the Rainbow Bridge...
