This smaller shrub bamboo creates a nice variegated hedge with
long, slender leaves.
It also makes a fine container specimen. Although it is listed at height
of 4-8 feet, it can easily be cut down every spring and maintained like a
dwarf groundcover bamboo. Among variegated bamboos, it has the
longest, most slender leaf which provides elegant texture to any landscape.
it is best to use rhizome barrier or root pruning techniques with this
bamboo because of its spreading habit.
