Nandina domestica 'Burgundy Wine'

Overall Description

Burgundy Wine is a semi dwarf Nandina variety that pretty much packs the complete package for use in many different landscape projects. Overall growth habit is rounded, being equally as tall as it is wide - however, light trimming can be performed if a particularly neat formal shape is desired. New foliage starts out as a deep burgundy / red, and gradually changes to a mixture of light & dark greens, with bright red highlighted throughout. Fall coloration is nice dark burgundy / red tones, with occasional orangish colored highlights here & there. Requires little to no maintenance, and is quite adaptable to a wide range of sun exposures, and soil types.

Foliage is very slender, with a fine texture.........which helps to provide a definite contrast in when planted in mixed beds with species with larger leaves, and heavier textured foliage. Works great as a foundation planting, foreground plantings in front of larger, taller species - and is even small enough for use as a container specimen, just make sure to use a large enough container ( 7 - 10 gallon should do ). Can be used on decks, patios, entrance ways...........just about anywhere you need a texture contrast, and beautiful colors year round. Even produces small white flower panicles in mid to late May, which are followed by a moderate number of white colored berries in mid fall. Berries usually remain on the plants through the winter giving yet another point of seasonal interest.

Lowest Resistance [ 1 - 2 - 3 - 4 - 5 - 6 - 7 - 8 - 9 - 10 ] Highest Resistance

--Fertilization / Feeding :
For maximum health & hardiness, we highly recommend a good grade granular ( preferably organic ) fertilizer / plant food for use with all of our plant species. We personally use, and recommend the Espoma line of organic plant foods, as they are super effective yet gentle enough to use on even the most delicate of evergreen species where fertilizer burn would normally be a major concern. However, a water soluble type plant food (Miracle Gro, or equivalent ) are also acceptable options. Other granular fertilizers with a 6 - 12 - 12, or 10 - 10 - 10 ratio can also be used - but we suggest using them at 1/2 - 3/4 strength to avoid any chemical burn issues to the root system of the plants. Best to fertilize in early spring, and again in mid fall - avoid feeding standard chemical fertilizers during hot summer months, and directly after transplanting. The Espoma Organic Plant Foods may be used at anytime.
