Needle Leaf looking Nandina 'san jose'?

decogrlJanuary 11, 2008

I was at MANTS SHow in Balitmore this week and saw this cultivar of Nandina---really neat and totally different than any other as it has very fine needle like leafs. Problem is I cannot find ANYTHING about it on the web. ANyone have any clues? Maybe it was San something else but I am pretty sure about the name.

How about this one, also called 'San Gabriel'.

Yes, the correct cultivar name is 'San Gabriel' but it is sometimes sold as 'Filamentosa', 'Kurajusi' or 'Orihime'. Not as winter hardy as some cultivars, but a great little plant, IMO. Not inclined to bloom much, if at all, at least in my climate, so maybe a good choice for those areas where nandina is problematic.

The size isn't mentioned in the forestfarm listing for San Gabriel, it just says "habit is erect." Other sites list it as getting only 1-2 feet - can that be right? It looks tempting, but would be really nice if it were, say, 6 feet instead of 2.

Not gonna get 6' :-)) This is a compact form of nandina but the 1-2' is a little on the conservative side. 2-3' is typical for this cultivar (which is very popular here and sells out rapidly when it appears in garden centers).
