Sigh. There seem to be many more non-native plants in our neighbor hood than Miz Flora cares to admit. Nandina, Nandina domestica is one of them.
It looks a little like bamboo, but it’s not related. Yet, like bamboo and Burning Bush, Nandina is somewhat invasive, particularly in the southern states. Probably because of the warmer climate. It’s one to like though, especially when we’ve been talking about providing wildlife with food.
These berries will be harvested by songbirds over the winter, though they are toxic to mammals, including house cats.
