( Royal Princess Nandina )
|'Royal Princess' reaches a height of eight feet at maturity, but bears smaller foliage than the species. This is an upright shrub with evergreen leaves that change to reddish-purple in fall. Leaves are pinate to 3-pinate, with lance-shaped leaflets. Bears conical panicles to 16 inches long, of small star-shaped, white flowers with large, yellow anthers. Abundant, red berry clusters are persistant through winter, and can be used in arrangements or eaten by birds.
Found along the foundation of older homes, you may inherit a plant that needs some selective pruning. Do not whack the entire plant back so that all canes are the same height. Selectively prune, staggering the heights of each cane.
Important Info : When pruning, stagger lengths of canes, rather than pruning straight across.
