Nandina & Lupin
I planted a compact growing Nandina shrub on the corner of the Island Bed for colour and texture contrast. This picture shows the Nandina with a flowery Lupin neighbour. Its foliage is tinged with red in autumn.
Nandina would get my prize for being one of the most well-behaved shrubs in the garden. It has beautiful changes of colour. And this variety never ever seems to grow any bigger!
