How to Care for Heavenly Bamboo
Before you purchase your Heavenly Bamboo Shrubs, be sure to read the recommended care instructions to ensure your plant remains happy and healthy for years to come.
How do I water Nandina Heavenly Bamboo Shrubs?
If it is your Nandina's first growing season, water it deeply and regularly to help establish its extensive root system. Always ensure the soil is kept consistently moist. However, do not waterlog the roots or cause root rot disease. This disease is when your plant's roots are sitting in standing water for too long. Heavenly Bamboo shrubs grown in containers will need a more frequent watering schedule than those planted in the ground. Once your shrubs are well-established, they are more drought-resistant and can tolerate short periods of drought with hardly any problem.
How do I prune my Heavenly Bamboo plant?
Heavenly Bamboo shrubs thrive when they are allowed to grow in their natural form rather than being heavily pruned or sheared as a formal hedge. However, you are free to lightly prune the canes of your plant once a year to help it look healthy and full. Think of it as a trim instead of a transformative hair cut. For best results, prune the canes at a variety of heights to keep it looking dynamic and full.
What Kind of Sunlight Does My Heavenly Bamboo Nandina Shrub Need?
Your Nandina Heavenly Bamboo shrub is adaptable to many different light conditions, from full sun to partial shade. However, if you want your plant to achieve the most vibrant colors, you should plant your shrub in full sunlight. If your shrub is in partial shade for the majority of the day, it will survive, but it will not be a vibrant as those grown in the sunlight. If your plant is in a container garden, you can change the location of your plant varying on the season or time of day.
How do I fertilize Heavenly Bamboo Nandina?
We recommend having a regular fertilizing schedule for your Heavenly Bamboo Nandina shrubs to help encourage blooming and preserve their vibrant colors. Apply a fertilizer designed for ornamental shrubs twice a year, in the early spring, before their growing season begins, and early summer. The early summer application will be just enough time for the fertilizer to settle in and absorb before the cool winter months arrive. Be sure not to overfertilize your plants because this could cause root burn. Also, do not fertilize your shrubs during their growth dormancy seasons of fall and winter. Fertilizing during their dormancy could disrupt them and damage their next growing season.
