The Flirt Nandina (Nandina domestica 'Murasaki' or Nandina 'Flirt') is a compact, evergreen shrub prized for its vibrant, year-round foliage. This low-maintenance, versatile, and eye-catching plant brings texture, color, and interest to a variety of landscape settings.
The Flirt Nandina is a dwarf variety of the popular Heavenly Bamboo, growing to a modest height of 1-2 feet and a spread of 1-2 feet. This compact size makes it an excellent choice for small gardens, borders, mass plantings, or even container gardening. Hardy in USDA zones 6-10, the Flirt Nandina is a versatile plant that can adapt to a wide range of climates and growing conditions.
Low-maintenance and drought-tolerant, the Flirt Nandina is perfect for gardeners looking for a plant that offers beauty without demanding constant care. The shrub thrives in full sun to partial shade and is adaptable to various soil types, as long as the soil is well-draining.
The Flirt Nandina is renowned for its striking and colorful foliage. The plant's leaves are divided into numerous lance-shaped leaflets, which display a vibrant mix of red and green hues throughout the year. In the spring, the new growth emerges as a brilliant red, gradually transitioning to deep green as the leaves mature. In the fall and winter, the foliage takes on a fiery red hue, adding a pop of color to the landscape when other plants have gone dormant.
This vivid foliage not only provides visual interest but also adds texture to the garden, making the Flirt Nandina an ideal companion plant for a variety of garden styles.
While the Flirt Nandina is primarily grown for its foliage, it also produces small, white flowers in the late spring to early summer. These flowers give way to clusters of bright red berries in the fall, which persist into the winter months. The fruit not only adds another layer of visual interest to the plant but also provides a valuable food source for birds and other wildlife during the winter.
It is important to note that the berries of the Flirt Nandina, like other Nandina varieties, contain compounds that can be toxic to pets if ingested in large quantities. Therefore, it is recommended to plant the Flirt Nandina in areas where pets are less likely to have access.
