I transplanted several nandina bushes and now the leaves are falling off. What can I do to help save them?
This article will help you:
Also, make sure the conditions are correct for this shrub in its new location:
It lost its leaves, and we are not in a cold area.
Uh oh. Has there been a dry spell? Oddly enough, if the opposite has happened- Too much water_ then this can cause leaf drop as well. This article will give you more information on the care of these:
Nandina is listed as a noxious, non-native invasive in many states. Yet you don't mention this in your latest email's nandina article. Please don't advise gardeners to plant such invasives. It's easy to find info about nandina's invasiveness online. The same goes for other invasives, such as burning bush. Anita Danko email@example.com
There are many areas in which these species are non-invasive, and as you stated it is very easy to find this information on line. Any plant can become invasive if put into the proper area, and it would not be feasible to label every plant as invasive. It is up to the individual to inform us of the area in which they reside, so that we can give them proper advice on what to plant, and what not to plant.
We just, simply, cannot label every plant in the list as invasive. As stated, any plant can become invasive under the right circumstances.
An example: In my area, Nandina are quite difficult to cultivate, and often do not last long.
We appreciate your concern.
I have a nandina plant that is sprouting new nandinas all over my garden. I cut them but they just grow back. I heard of a product that you can apply to the cut that will prevent it from growing again. Unfortunately, I don't know the name of the product and none of my local nurseries know either. Can you help me? The nandinas are coming up all over. Thank you, Mariellen
One technic for killing invasive trees and vines is to paint herbicide to a freshly cut stump. Use a child's paintbrush or a foam paintbrush. The herbicide is pulled down to the roots. Some authorities recommend concentrated glyphosate (RoundUp) and some recommend a combination of glyphosate and triclopyr (Weed B Gon, Garlon). Ready-to-use herbicide is too dilute. Nandina is now considered invasive in Texas. You are seeing this in real time. https://dcmga.com/north-texas-gardening/shrubs/nandina/
Beautiful plant, but we need to move it and need to know something about it first.
They are Nandina domestica and are best moved in spring or fa
Thanks. I trimmed them 2 years ago and forgot it needed to be the same timing as my crape myrtle. They are 10 years old.
It is still spring, so go ahead. Here are the instructions:
Tried to send pictures several times.This will be my 3rd attempt.Hope it works this time
It looks like a Nandina! There are a few species, most of which are invasive.
Those flowers will give way to red berries!
