Pseudosasa Japonica Tsutsumiana

 

Green Onion Bamboo. This form has swollen culm and rhizome internodes that resemble a string of beads or a "green onion", hence the common name. It usually is shorter than the regular Pseudosasa japonica but has the same leaf pattern. Makes a good mid-sized screen with an interesting cane feature. Nice container plant for indoors or outdoors. Height 10-15 Feet.

 

 

Full sun/partial shade. Hardy.
