Sasa Ramosa

 

Attractive dwarf bamboo, vigorous grower with lush dark green foliage. The invasive nature of this bamboo can be a nuisance however if this is not a concern and if allowed to spread as ground cover this bamboo will do that job spectacularly well, you will not be disappointed. Ideally suited in pots and containers, as a low hedge, ground cover or border plant. This bamboo is very hardy and in particularly cold winters the bleaching of the leaf tips create a variegation appearance. Max Height 1 Meter.

 

 

Plant in moist well drained soil. Full sun / partial shade, Hardy.
