Pleioblastus linearis

Maximum Height: 14 feet
Diameter: 1.0 inches
Hardiness: 10 F
Recommended for USDA zone 8 through 10

Pleioblastus linearis, like Pleioblastus gramineus, will make a thick screenHowever, the leaves of Pleioblastus linearis are longer and the plant can grow taller. A pathway only a couple of feet wide with mature Pleioblastus linearis lining both sides will be in total shade.  The effect of walking through such a path is somewhat magical.
