Nandina_Obsession1300

Nandina domestica `SEIKA` is a new Nandina discovered by 2 employees at the Magnolia Gardens Nursery tissue culture facility. This new Nandina is a sport of Nandina domestica ‘Gulf Stream’ but unlike it’s Mom, Obsession has bright red colored young foliage that is retained while the plant is actively growing. Mature foliage is deep green in color. The cultivar name ‘SEIKA’ means “sacred fire” in Japanese and was given as the name because of the color of the new growth. Like ‘Gulf Stream’, Obsession is a dwarf Nandina and remains small at 24-30″ tall with a 20-24″ spread and is characterized by its dense upright growth habit. Obsession keep to itself and does not spread with age. Only one spike of flowers have been observed and no berries have been observed to date in Magnolia, TX, most likely due to the intense summer heat.
