Shibataea chinensis

Height: 5 feet
Hardiness: -5 F
Recommended for USDA zone 6

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.
