Nandina domestica 'Orihime'

Conventional wisdom maintains that the only form of Nandina that fruits is the species (Nandina domestica) and occasionally the selection compacta. Well this is an odd looking plant, possibly not for everyone, but that is definitely fruit. Actually I like the plant but have never noticed it fruit before.

This particular individual is near the entrance to China Valley from the road. We have a few more including a grouping in the bed below the road where the hose is coiled.
