Nandina Domestica & The Colour Effect

These Nandina Domestica always look good ...when I first planted them "on mass" on either side of my roundabout....I was not sure if I would like the effect...in winter they look spectacular in their crimson coat.

Lin when I worked full time there was only ever one season that it really bothered me & that was Autumn..hated driving off to an office situation & missing out on the beaut weather.. :roll: ..this morning when we sat on the front verandah in the morning sunshine & had breakfast I kept thinking "finally I don't have to live by a clock""

Lovely photo. Your nandinas look well behaved (no trimming like buxus) and their colour change throughout the year is an added bonus. Also love the crepe myrtle. :)
