Flirt™ Nandina domestica ‘MURASAKI’
- Red new growth in spring and autumn, more red in summer
- The safer choice around bushland
- Low growing, spreading
Description: Flirt™ Nandina was bred from Harbour Dwarf and retains its low growing, spreading characteristics, but with the added bonus of masses of red new growth. When other Nandinas are red in winter, Flirt™ Nandina is green, but when other Nandinas are green in spring, autumn and summer, Flirt™ Nandina is red. Research has shown it will not spread from seed, making it a safer choice around bushland.
