Want a Nandina with red foliage growth when others are green?
BLUSH™ Nandina domestica ‘AKA’ PBR.

Blush is a new Nandina that amazingly has red new growth when other Nandinas are completely green. It has red new foliage colour in the spring, summer and autumn which has never been seen before in other Nandinas. The new red growth gives colour interest all year round. Blush flushes red in winter with a deeper and more vibrant colour than other Nandinas, with some people commenting that they can never get their Nandinas this red! Although Nandinas are very widely used, Blush will make your Nandinas stand out above the rest.

Blush is 30% smaller than Nandina domestica ‘Nana’ and shoots red new growth instead of a yellow-green. It grows 60–70cm tall by 60–70cm wide, and is non-spreading. Part of the Hardy Exotics range, Blush is tough as it handles drought and frost.

You can also try the new FLIRT™ Nandina domestica ‘MURASAKI’ PBR. Flirt is a low growing Nandina that spreads with age. This groundcover grows 30–40cm tall by 20–40cm wide and has red foliage that creates a waterfall effect over the green. Flirt surprisingly has a better red colour in the summer months than winter, so it complements Blush well if you want masses of red colour all year round.
