Firepower Nandina
Nandina domestica  'Firepower'

USDA Plant Hardiness Zones: 6a-11  Find Your Zone

Note:  For our customers who live and garden north of USDA Plant Hardiness Zone 6a, where this Nandina variety is not reliably winter hardy, you'll be happy to know it can be grown in containers that can be brought indoors during winter and placed back outside when temperatures warm up in spring.



Special Attributes

True to its name, 'Firepower' Dwarf Nandina displays brilliant, blazing fire-red foliage during winter on globe shape shrubs that reach 2 to 2.5 feet tall and wide at maturity. A winter-long stunning display when planted in groupings, massed, or as a colorful low hedge or border. Spring foliage is lime green turning to a medium green during summer. Exceptionally drought tolerant when established and does not like wet feet. Whether growing in the ground or in pots, sharp soil drainage is a must for this one!




Landscape & Garden Uses

Growing naturally to 2 to 2.5 feet tall wide, its mounding form and beautiful foliage make Firepower Nandina an excellent choice for stunningly colorful groupings or mass plantings in sunny to partially shaded landscape borders and home foundation plantings. Also ideal for use to line walkways and paths. An excellent accent or centerpiece in container gardens, Firepower is also a fine addition to red theme gardens, rock gardens, and Xeriscape gardens (low water needs).

Spacing:  2 feet apart for solid hedge or mass planting;  4 feet or more apart for space between plants





Cultural Preferences

Firepower Nandina is exceptionally easy to grow in most any average moist but well drained soil and full sun to part shade. Plants are exceptionally drought tolerant when established. As with so many other shrubs, constantly wet or soggy can cause root rot and other plant diseases. Exceptionally low maintenance requiring little if any pruning. Its low water needs makes it highly suitable for Xeriscape gardening.
