Nandina Firepower is a compact, rounded shrub produces conical clusters of small, star-shaped white flowers in mid-summer among bamboo-like leaves. In autumn, the leaves turn shades of fiery red and copper and the flowers are followed by shiny, round, scarlet fruits. With several seasons of interest, this dwarf form of heavenly bamboo is a hardworking plant for a sunny spot where border space is limited.
In mid or late spring lightly cut back any shoots that spoil the symmetry of the plant.
