Product Details

The extremely popular Firepower Nandina is one of the most colorful Nandinas available!  It gets its name from the colorful effect that this Nandina brings to your Landscape.

Features of the Firepower Nandina

The Firepower Nandina works great in partial and full sun environments.  From spring through late summer, its leaves will enhance your garden with a bright yellow color.  As the cooler temperatures approach, its magic begins to happen as it turns a beautiful red color.  This Nandina will add color all fall and winter long that really brings out other colors in the landscape.

Nandinas are a form of bamboo.  They have a unique growth habit which is neat to see. 

This plant thrives on very little care and no pruning which is great for the beginner gardner.  

Landscape Ideas for a Firepower Nandina

There are many uses for Nandinas.  Plant in groups for a big punch of color, or you can use them as a border planting.  When planting a border, space Nandina about 2 feet apart.  They will grow together making a small, colorful hedge that is year-round.

Plant three Nandina around a specimen plant like a Hinoki Cypress or an Emerald Arborvitae.  The yellow and red colors will pull the dark greens out from the specimen plant.

Planting & Care

How to Plant & Care for Your new Firepower Nandina

Be sure to choose the right location and conditions for your Firepower Nandina to thrive.  Spring and Fall are ideal times to plant.  However, in warmer climates you are open to a majority of winter and cooler zones you can plant in early or late summer.  Just take care to avoid extreme temperature.  Nandinas grow in zone 6-10.

Plant in full to partial sun.  Nadinas are adaptable to just about any soil.  However, avoid wet soil to prevent disease and even death.  Water deeply when planting and twice weekly for the first 3 months while your new plant is establishing.  After establishing, nandinas are very drought tolerant and will only need watered during extremely hot/dry conditions. Three inches of mulch is a great option to prevent weeds, keep the soil cool and moist, and protect the roots during extreme temperatures.  Fertilize in spring with a general purpose, slow release fertilizer.  We have our own custom blend made to give your new plants the best start!   Nandinas can tolerate heavy pruning, but don't require it.  Prune any time of the year.

The healthier your plants are, the less likely they will be susceptible to pests and disease.  Nandinas rarely have issues with pests.  If fungal issues arise, you can treat with a fungicide. However, with most fungal diseases treating after infection isn't extremely effective, so if you have problems yearly treat in early spring with fungicides to prevent infection. To avoid fungal infections, avoid wet conditions and overhead watering.

Landscape Ideas for your Firepower Nandina

The compact, vibrant Firepower Nandina adds loads of color and takes up minimal space.  Nandinas are excellent for mixed beds, borders and mass plantings.  This evergreen adds an exciting look to rock gardens.  Try in a container to add a brilliant pop of color to your entryway, porch, patio, or deck.  For borders plant about 2 feet apart.  Otherwise, plant about 3 - 4 feet apart.

Planting Instructions

Step 1:

Unpack all of your plants right away! Look for the perfect location. Make sure you are planting in the correct light conditions.

Step 2:

Dig a hole twice the width of the root ball. Position your plant in the hole. Make sure the top of the root ball is slightly higher than the original grade of the bed. Also check to make sure it is straight from all sides.

Step 3:

Fill up hole with water before placing new plant in hole in order to saturate the surrounding soil.  Once the water is absorbed place your plant in the hole and water thoroughly.

Step 4:

Mix the potting soil and the soil removed from the hole. Start by backfilling soil around the root ball. Carefully pack in the soil to remove any air pockets. Water plant thoroughly again until the soil will not hold any more water. This will ensure that your new plant will be a success.

Step 5:

Fertilize around your plant with the amount recommended on the package. Our special Fertilizer contains all of the nutrients to keep your plants growing and healthy. Repeat every 3 months.

Step 6:

Finish up by mulching around your new plant.  Apply 2 - 3 inches of mulch around the plant and plant bed. Mulch will help keep the soil moist and keep weeds out.

Step 7:

Keep watered with a hose every 2-3 days for 2 weeks. This is critical for plant survival. In the third week, begin to water as needed depending on the weather. Always check by placing your finger under the mulch to see if the soil is moist.

I've only had them for a week, so I'll add another review later. But so far they are doing well. The firepower arrived healthy and after being in he ground for almost a week I have new growth. I can't comment on the color yet since it is still small and green. I am pleased at the moment, and if the color does look good with my blue spruce I will be getting two more.
