Nandina domestica, commonly known as heavenly bamboo, is a species of flowering plant in the Berberidaceae family. Heavenly bamboo or sacred bamboo is native to Asia & Japan. Nandina is widely grown in gardens as an ornamental plant with bright-red foliage in the fall and attractive new growth in the spring.

Despite its name, nandina is not actually a bamboo at all. It is a mounded evergreen shrub with glossy leaves. In colder areas, the plant can be deciduous. New leaves in the spring are pink to red before turning green. Older leaves turn red or purple before falling in the winter. The flowers are white in early summer and held above the foliage. Berries are produced in the fall and often last throughout the winter.
