This is one of the smallest of the Phyllostachys gensus. It is a great bamboo for a short dense screen. It makes wonderful small screens because of the robust foliage. From China but widely used in Japan. Called Hime-hachiku in Japan.
I recommend this species for USDA Climate Zones 6 and warmer.
|This is one the best species for a short screen. It can provide a great screen from just above ground level to 8-15 feet depending on you location.|
Many species of bamboo will start to thin out when confined to a small area but this species becomes lush and provides a great small privacy hedge.
|Mature canes of this short bamboo are usually under 1" diameter. Underside of new foliage can have a blue-green tint. This is a great low maintenance bamboo that can provide privacy and a lush garden environment to your landscape.|
