It is an upright broadleaf evergreen shrub from China and Japan. It is likened to bamboo in habit and appearance but is actually related to barberry.
Popular and widely planted in the south, this clump-forming plant produces open cane-like branches topped with airy compound leaves that are blue-green in color and leathery in texture. Leaves are often bright copper-red as they emerge and a burnished red color in winter. In summer, white panicles of small star-shaped flowers appear followed by clusters of round red berries that persist into winter.
Now about teh edibility. The leaves are easy to figure out, young and tender boiled twice. Not great but edible. Fruit? Why do some authorities say they are edible and some say they are not, though it is agreed the most they give you if eaten raw in small amounts is a stomach ache. This is pure speculation on my part but since the plant does have hydrocyanic acid in it the Nandina might be like the red elderberry. With that plant the seeds in the berries have hydrocyanic acid and can upset your stomach or make you more sick if consumed in large amounts. However, if you remove the seeds from the red elderberries the pulp is edible. Berries are poisonous to birds and animals.

Heavenly bamboo prefers some shade but can tolerate sun. As a garden specimen it grows best in warm-temperate to subtropical climates and thrives in fertile, evenly moist soil. Traditionally planted in Asian temple gardens, it looks great en masse, as a specimen plant, or in mixed borders.
