The Gulf Stream Heavenly Bamboo is a favorite shrub thanks to its compact form and vibrant foliage that’s always changing colors, adding year-round interest to any landscape. In the spring, new leaves appear as beautiful scarlet red foliage, gradually maturing to an attractive blue-green color in the summer. We love to use them in narrow planting areas such as walkways between the houses, where these well-behaved evergreen shrubs work perfectly because they are not going to outgrow the space. The Nandina domestica ‘Gulf Stream’ variety is also the perfect shrub for poolside planting, mass planting and using them as a hedge to define property lines in style!

These are very versatile shrubs that can be grown in full shade or full sun exposures. Nandina Gulf Stream tolerates urban pollution, so they are also an excellent addition to any urban garden! They can handle the heat and once established, have low to moderate watering needs. These are very useful plants and a must-have for any landscape designer. They are great companion plants for Pittosporum, Roses, Junipers, and Abelia, all of which are available at Big Tex Tree Nurseries.

We recommend fertilizing in early spring. We've teamed up with the top fertilizer-producing nursery to design ideal fertilizers, supplements, liquids, and pellets ideal for treating Houston's dense soil with the nutrients and vitamins essential for growing a beautiful landscape.

Plant this very hardy, very low-maintenance shrub and enjoy the heavenly, ever-changing foliage all year round! Come visit any of our nurseries today and we will be glad to help you pick the perfect Gulf Stream Heavenly Bamboo for the perfect spot in your yard.
