Pleioblastus viridi-striatus
Pleioblastus viridi-striatus in the garden
A quick-growing, running small bamboo that grows to a maximum height of 2 1/2 feet. The canes, which can grow to a diameter of 1/4 inch are covered with variegated green and gold leaves. Plant in partial shade in a contained area if spreading will be a problem. Hardy to 0 degreess F. Looks best if cut to the ground each winter to highlight the vivid yellow new growth. In our garden we are triming several times to continually promote flushes of new growth. A good bamboo for borders and along walkways or as a foreground plant for taller shrubs.
