We developed and characterized a total of 10 novel polymorphic microsatellite loci from the genome of an ornamental shrub, Nandina domestica. The number of alleles per locus in 24 individuals from four populations varied from 2 to 6. The expected and observed heterozygosity ranged from 0153 to 0778 and from 0 to 1, respectively. These markers will provide tools for future studies on population genetic diversity of Ndomestica. Additionally, most of our new markers could yield the amplification products in four other Berberidaceae species.
