Planting requirements:

Nandina Moonbay looks best in full sun to light or open shade. The foliage colors are more brilliant with more sun. It is drought tolerant once established but looks better with occasional summer watering.


Excellent as a pot plant or in garden bed, can be used as a border or smaller hedge.


Remove any old foliage and prune yearly to encourage a dense upright growth habit. Sprinkle a slow release food around in Spring. Apply mulch to keep roots coo
