Product Description

Nandina domestica is an elegant small evergreen shrub of upright, bamboo-like habit, the compound leaves with lanceolate leaflets, purplish when young and again in winter. Small white flowers in large panicles are followed by red berries.

Sacred bamboo






Despite the common name "sacred bamboo", Nandina domestica is not a bamboo but an erect evergreen shrub up to 2m (7ft) tall by 1.5 m (5ft) wide, with numerous, usually unbranched stems growing from ground level. The glossy leaves are sometimes deciduous in colder areas, 50–100 cm (20–39 in) long, bi- or tri-pinnately compound, with the individual leaflets 4–11 cm (2–4 in) long and 1.5–3 cm broad.

The young leaves in spring are brightly coloured pink to red before turning green; old leaves turn red or purple again before falling. Its petiolate leaves are 50–100 cm long, compound (two or three pinnacles) with leaflets, elliptical to ovate lanceolate and of entire margins, 2–10 cm long by 0.5–2 cm wide, with petioles swollen at their bases.

The inflorescences & are axillary or terminally erect panicles with numerous hermaphrodite flowers. There are several ovate-oblong sepals of a pinkish white color, and six oblong white petals, each 4 by 2.5 mm. The flowers are borne in early summer in conical clusters held well above the foliage.


Sacred Bamboo is easily grown in rich, moist, well-drained soils in filtered sun/part shade to shade. Avoid direct sun. Best growth occurs in moist shady locations. Plants adapt very well to the limited light and controlled temperatures which are often present in indoor locations. Protect indoor plants from full sun and dry air.

Use a moist, well-drained soil (preferably acidic soil), and water the plants as soon as the soil feels dry a little below the surface.

Mist the leaves several times a week with a spray bottle. Mist the plant more frequently in the summer growing season. the more water you can supply the blooms, the healthier it will be.

Fertilize palm plants with a time-release fertilizer in spring. This gives the plant most of the nutrients it needs for the entire season. The fronds benefit from a micronutrient spray in summer. Leaf color is one of the best guide ,Rich green indicates fertilizer levels are adequate & slight overall yellowish color may mean the to apply nutrients


Fast growing palm suitable for use as a privacy or screening plant.


Bamboo plants are tolerant of being under watered, but they will grow their best when watered on a regular basis. Ideally, the plant prefer it when their soil is kept evenly moist, especially during the summer months (their active growing season). Allow the soil to dry out only slightly between waterings in the summer. During the winter, you can let the soil dry out a bit more between waterings. Be very careful not to overwater though. Nandina love bright filtered or indirect sunlight. Plant can suffer from too much or too little light. Keep them in the balcony or near a window with bright light. Use fertiliser sparingly in summers only.
