Heavenly Bamboo (Nandina domestica) 'Royal Princess' is a multiseason ornamental shrub. Pale pink to white blossoms appear in early summer. Autumn brings heavy red berries and orange-red foliage. 'Royal Princess' grows 6 to 8 feet tall. It has not been at all invasive in my zone 7a garden, and has been a relatively slow-grower. It does well in part to full sun.
