|I have three fire power nandina, I planted them last fall and they were beautiful all fall and winter. This spring the leaves are dry and they looked stressed. I have fertilized them and they have plenty of water.
|Although nandina will tolerate Arizona's summer sunshine, they grow and look best if they have at least some protection from the hot afternoon sun. It's possible that as your nandinas settle into their growing spots they will be better able to tolerate the summer sunshine. You won't know until this time next year, though. If you don't want to wait that long for improvement you may need to dig and move your plants to a more sheltered spot.|
