Nandinas That Provide Red Foliage Outside of Winter

These three plants are revolutionising the way we see Nandinas. They provide red foliage when other Nandina varieties are green. Each plant is unique in its own way and has something different to bring to the table.

The Flirt™ plant is a ground cover option that is the opposite of other Nandinas. While most Nandinas are red in winter and not the rest of the year, Flirt™ Nandina gets red in spring, summer and autumn, but not in winter. It reaches 30-40 centimetres high and 40-50 centimetres wide.

Blush™ Nandina has cleaner red foliage and is red for 9 months of the year. It is a medium dwarf shrub that produces red new growth in spring and autumn, with a full flush of red in winter. Blush™ Nandina gets 60-70cm high and wide. Obsession™ Nandina is perhaps the most impressive of the three plants mentioned here and is set to replace Gulf Stream.

This dwarf shrub reaches the same height as Blush™ Nandina and gets red foliage all year round; it has red new growth in spring, autumn and summer with a full flush of red in winter. These incredible Nandina varieties are changing the face of the entire Nandina market in Australia. When customers walk around retail nurseries to see red Nandinas in summer, they are amazed!
