Question: I purchased some

Answer: Nandina domestica 'Gulf Stream' is a dwarf variety that is very symmetrical and compact in it's growth habit. 'Gulf Stream' can reach 3-4' tall with an equal spread. Spring flush is a bronze color, summer color is a deep blue green, while the fall color can range from orange to red with more intense colors occurring in colder weather. You may have planted your 'Gulf Stream' nandinas too close to the shed. You'll want them to have adequate growing room plus a little extra room for good air circulation to avoid diseases. If you can move them out another 2', they will be happier.
