Very similar to the more common Shibatea kumasaca, but shorter and more
tolerant of alkaline conditions. Reported in the ABS source list as
growing to only 2 feet tall, but the plant at our nursery is 5 feet tall.
This bamboo can be distinguished from Sh. kumasaca by its lack of pubescence
on the lower surface of the leaf.
