A low-growing shrub whose incredible colouring makes it glow like a smouldering fireplace.
Heavenly Bamboo Fire Power is not actually a bamboo, but it certainly is heavenly – its small tear-shaped leaves start out yellow in the spring before greening in the summer, they then change to orange in autumn and finally a deep red in the winter. Being an evergreen plant, means it can maintain those red leaves into the next year, allowing them to mix with new yellow and green growth. It really is a wonderful plant that never fails to put on a show.
All of our Hedging Plants allow you to style your garden in a range of different ways, not just because of their varied colours, but also because of the way you choose to trim and maintain them. Prune them regularly to achieve a neat, clean form, or let them bush-out a little to create a more natural appearance. Whether you’re using a hedge to give your garden some privacy, or as protection from the weather, road and noise pollution, you’ll want to choose a plant that complements the rest of your garden’s visual appearance. All of our Hedging Plants have evergreen foliage – giving you some pleasant greenery to look at all-year-round.
