( Moon Bay Nandina )
|'Moon Bay' is a fine, compact dwarf variety, producing brilliant red winter foliage, and pale green new foliage. Somewhat smaller leaves than is typical for the species. Mature height reaches 1 1/2 to 2 1/2 feet. This is an upright shrub with evergreen leaves that 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. Red berry-like 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.
