Its bright lime-green leaves are held up by narrow branches that grow in a rounded bush form. Its average landscape size reaches 3-4′ high by 3-4’ wide and as an evergreen plant you can expect this beautiful green, chartreuse color all year-long.

Care Instructions

Plant Nandina domestica ‘Lemon-Lime’™ in average well-drained soil in an area with full sun to partial shade. In the 3 gallon size we stock, you get the benefit of a plant comparable in size to a 5 gallon without the extra work of digging and preparing a bigger hole. Water deeply and regularly once planted to establish the root-system then reduce watering unless during periods of extreme heat. Each Spring a slow release fertilizer is recommended in addition to light pruning, trimming off 1/3 of its height to encourage new growth.
