Answer: Nandina, or Heavenly Bamboo, will benefit from regular pruning which helps renew the plants. It's natural for the older canes to become bare at the bottom. Without pruning, the plants can begin to look top-heavy. Prune some of the oldest canes down to the ground this winter and new growth will appear in the spring. The following winter, prune down the remaining older canes and the next spring you'll have a completely renovated Nandina. To keep your plant dense and full, prune a few canes down to the ground every winter to encourage brand new growth. Enjoy your plants!
