Nandina domestica Plum Passion ('Monum')
- Position: full sun or partial shade
- Soil: moist but well-drained soil
- Rate of growth: average
- Flowering period: July
- Hardiness: frost hardy (needs winter protection in cold areas)
A recently introduced cultivar that will provide year-round interst in the garden. The new foliage of this compact evergreen shrub emerges in spring a rich plum, providing great contrast with the older blue-green leaves. The colour fades as the bamboo-like foliage matures, but in autumn they turn firey shades of plum-red and copper. Further interest is provided in summer, when conical clusters of small, star-shaped white flowers appear, and these are followed by shiny, round, scarlet fruits. A hardworking, heavenly bamboo which is a valuable plant for a sunny spot where border space is limited.
- Garden care: In mid or late spring lightly cut back any shoots that spoil the symmetry of the plant.

Comments about Crocus Nandina'Plum Passion':
I covered this plant in strong winter fleece throughout the entire cold weather, from late autumn to late spring. And thick mulch around the base. Yet when the protection was removed it was still totally dead. Foliage and roots. It is a Very Tender plant only for use where there is no frost at all or in a conservatory. As it is so tender and unpractical can only give one star.
