It has leaves striped chartreuse and green it makes this one of the most beautiful groundcovers. It’s also very useful as a small, bright specimen shrub in a mixed border when allowed growing to its full height.

This bamboo will brighten dark locations, but it should have some sunlight. As a groundcover bamboo, it is best mowed to ground level in early spring to produce new, fresh foliage.

It tends to spread evenly and is easily controlled by simply digging out any straying rhizomes for transplanting into new locations.

It’s a winter hardy giant bamboo. In spring, when new culms shoot, you can see how fast the Moso will grow, new shoots can grow up to a 1m a day, depending on weather and soil conditions. Young culms have grey-green colour on them. Young shoots are edible. In china they cut the tops off to let the in sun in the crop so the poles grow as straight as possible, with the tops they make brooms out of them.

The attractive large mid-green leaves, darkest in the shade appear in the second year of growth and drape gracefully downward in an umbrella shape from several levels of branches near the top of the culm. The thick-walled culms are unique in that they are flattened on opposite sides to form a rounded corner yet square shape overall when transacted, giving this plant the common name Square Bamboo.

It’s one of the common bamboos in the United States, and for a good reason, although usually not very tall, it is one of the strongest and most useful. Growing rigidly uprights, this bamboo is one of the best for hedges and for planting next to driveways and walkways. It’s often has a series of distorted internodes at the base of the cane, sometimes called “Tortoise Shell” internodes that are quite ornamental and make this plant useful for craft work.

Culm colour of the species type is green. Like other Phyllostachys, when exposed to strong direct sunlight, the canes will fade to yellow with age. It can be an aggressive spreader in hot climates, where care must be used in its placement.
