Why the Gulf Stream Heavenly Bamboo?
Hardy and full of surprises, you'll never know what is next up the sleeve of Gulf Stream Heavenly Bamboo. Not a true member of the bamboo family, Gulf Stream's foliage takes on the appearance of bamboo which is where this shrub gets it's name from. The foliage is always changing - from the scarlet of new growth, to the blue-green of mature foliage, and finishing off with the brightest, most vibrant red in the fall. In between the color surges, small white flowers will fill in empty spaces in the foliage during the summer. Gulf Stream, with it's compact shape, is a great addition to use for borders or foundation plantings that will really make a statement in the overall landscape.
Heavenly Bamboo is native to Japan, China, and India and is referred to as bamboo due to the cane-like stems and leaves similar to that of bamboo leaves. Gulf Stream was developed at Hines Nursery in Richmond, Texas. This nandina can be cultivating by collecting pieces of plant material from the base of a mature Gulf Stream.
How to use in the landscape?
Gulf Stream, like other Heavenly Bamboo varieties, are non-invasive as these plants do not seed and spread over the landscape. This evergreen nandina has bright red foliage in the spring and also provides fantastic fall color in orange and red tones. Gulf Stream brings bright color to landscapes warm or cold, there is never a dull moment with this plant!

How To Plant
Gulf Stream grows best in full sun but can tolerate full shade if that is where this shrub is planted. This shrub prefers soil that is moist, rich, humusy with consistent watering. Once Gulf Stream is established, this plant can be drought tolerant and can also be evergreen in warmer climates.
How To Fertilize
Incorporate Elements Starter Plant food granular form into the soil when planting. If planting in spring or summer, start fertilizing late fall using Elements Starter Plant food granular form on an annual basis each late fall. Continue this for the first three years to get your plant well established.
