A beautifully patterned bamboo shrub that will give your garden a tropical quality.
The ribbon-like leaves of Dwarf Green Stripe Bamboo are wider than other members of the Pleioblastus family, which is great for showing-off their yellow and green decorations. These colours will become more pronounced if the plant is grown in a sunny location. Not as vigorous as its relatives, it can still be used for ground cover (if you are patient), but it is more at home in containers and rock gardens.
Bamboo is one of the world’s fastest growing plant-types. Traditionally from Asia, its hardiness means it can actually be grown very easily in Britain – visitors to your garden will be surprised and impressed to see it there. As a forest plant, it appreciates a steady supply of moisture and compost. And as an enthusiastic grower, you should give Bamboo room to expand, we suggest placing infant plants about 100cm apart.
