This shorter Semiarundinaria is a very useful bamboo when a fast spreading
hedge is desired with a maximum height of less than 20 feet. Most
Phyllostachys and other Semiarundinaria routinely grow over 20 feet tall.
Occasionally it has a condensed node near the base of the cane. It can
handle a wide range of light levels, from almost full shade to full sun.
