Semiarundinaria yashadake 'Kimmei'

Maximum Height: 15 feet
Diameter: 1 inch
Hardiness: 5 F
Recommended for USDA zone 7 - 10

Semiarundinaria yashadake 'Kimmei' has yellow culms with green grooves.  The leaves are dark green.  This is a vigorous runner and prolific shooter, making a dense privacy screen. When grown in full sun the culms acquire a beautiful red blush in the fall, as shown in the lower picture. Although naturally tall and willowy, it can be topped to any height or to maintain compact, upright canes.
